Ever wondered what it’s like to have a perfectly symmetrical handbag? Balenciaga answers that question with its latest XX Flap Bag, which features a mirror-like construction even when it’s segmented right down the middle.
The curved flap and angular base seem to meld perfectly well together, and you will notice the ‘BB’ logo conveniently flipped side by side to complete the look.
The best part? It’s launched in several different sizes, giving you plenty of options to consider, depending on your needs. The smallest of them all is the XX Small Flap Bag, which coming in at 27 cm wide and 15 cm high is anything but tiny.
The magnetic closure opens to reveal a single compartment with an inner patch pocket, and Balenciaga has also added an adjustable shoulder-and-crossbody strap that offers multiple ways of carrying.
Medium would be the next size up at 31 cm by 18 cm, while the XL size takes the crown at 43 cm wide and 25 cm high. Both are offered in box calfskin and supple crocodile-embossed calfskin, with the latter being slightly pricier due to its shiny embossed finish.
The XX Flap Bag can be found at Balenciaga boutiques in Singapore, with prices starting from SGD2250 for the Small XX Flap Bag in box calfskin, all the way up to SGD3250 for the XX XL Flap Bag in crocodile-embossed calfskin leather.
