Slouchy, relaxed and casual are just some words that best describe Balenciaga’s Crush. Perfect for grab-and-go days when you only have time to yank open a drawstring and toss everything in, this new-in at the fashion house is now available in new finishes and colours to tickle your fancy.
Leading the way this season is the Crush in washed denim (SGD3150). It comes in the small size, which measures 26 cm by 24 cm. Because of its hardiness and resilience to daily wear and tear, denim has become a popular option for handbags. The cotton canvas inner lining, which helps it stay lightweight, wins extra bonus points as well.

Another choice to consider is the Crush in black crinkled calfskin (SGD3650) with diagonal quilted detailing. The BB logo hardware replaces the ‘Balenciaga Paris’ print for this edition, adding further tactile appeal along with the bag’s semi-puffy quilted finish.
Rounding up the lot is the Crush in black crushed calfskin (SGD3250) that rather resembles the OG runway style. However, the key difference is the aged-gold chain strap that replaces the aged-silver on the previous two.
Turn your crush into reality by picking up one (or perhaps, two) of Balenciaga’s latest Crush bags.
