Balenciaga is not one to shy away from its head-turning collaboration with Crocs. The duo have done everything from elevated pumps to high heels (who can forget the Crocs Madame?), which gave the quintessential rubber slides a whole new look that was equal parts quirky and fashionable, yet staying within the avant-garde shoe category.
This season, the French fashion house has gone one step further with a phone holder and tote bag crafted entirely out of Crocs’ signature rubber material. These bags are perforated at the front and back, and they also feature riveted top handles that mimic the straps typically found on a pair of Crocs.
These ‘rivets’ are emblazoned with the words ‘Balenciaga’ in place of the cartoon crocodile, and you will find a debossed logo in a tone-on-tone format at the base of the respective bags as well.
Both the phone holder (SGD1050) and tote bag (SGD1750) have a chunky moulded base for extra stability, and they also have textured sides and a cut-out opening that adds extra visual interest from different angles.
Measuring 18 cm by 13 cm and 45 cm by 40 cm respectively, these bags will come in Black, Green and Pink, all of which are now available at Balenciaga Singapore’s online store.
Fancy a bag to match your Crocs Madame? Well, here you go.
