PHOTO COURTESY OF BALENCIAGA
The Le Cagole is surely one of, if not, the most famous styles at Balenciaga today. Expanding to include styles like a shoulder, sling and tote, these rocker-chic offerings generally come in a semi-structured silhouette for ladies. Now, all that is set to change with the introduction of Balenciaga’s Le Cagole Shopper Bag for men.
Balenciaga reworked the Le Cagole into a soft and relaxed format, modelling it after shopping totes typically for grocery runs. Depending on your styling preference, you can use the two handles apart or fold them together. Or slip one handle through the other to form a knot for extra security, because the main compartment is deliberately left zip-free.
Available in a single colour and size, the Le Cagole Shopper Bag in black Arena lambskin measures 31 cm wide and 32 cm high. Forming an almost squarish shape when open, it also boasts signature elements in line with the Le Cagole aesthetic. These include the front zipped pocket with knotted leather pull and prominent aged-silver studded hardware.
The soft and supple Le Cagole Shopper Bag is currently retailing for SGD2800. See it up close at Marina Bay Sands and Paragon Shopping Centre. Or head over to the men’s section on Balenciaga Singapore’s online store pronto.
