Balenciaga’s Hourglass needs little introduction. With its uniquely curved base and structured upright profile, its minimalist aesthetic boasts undeniable visual appeal. Furthermore, the tried-and-tested classic continues to transcend seasons and trends with fresh updates.
Like the new Hourglass Hinge.
You will notice an additional hinge detailing on this particular rendition of the Hourglass. It lets you easily lower and fold the rigid top handle, so that it rests comfortably while you wear it over the shoulder via the additional leather shoulder strap. The handle is also significantly longer this time, with a 17 cm drop length, for extra versatility.

The aged-silver B logo remains prominently in front, concealing the magnet that seals the bag shut. Fully lined in nappa lambskin leather for a leather finish in and out, the Hourglass Hinge is currently available in a single size, measuring 30 cm wide and 17 cm high.
You can choose from either black smooth calfskin or black crocodile-embossed calfskin, priced at SGD4050 and SGD4250 respectively.
