Ever wonder what the lovechild between the Hourglass and Le Cagole might look like? This is exactly it. Combining two wildly popular handbags into one single style, Balenciaga simply names it the Hourglass x Le Cagole.
The structured silhouette of the Hourglass serves as its trapezoidal base, while Le Cagole’s signature studded detailing injects an undeniable dose of punk-rock attitude. The Hourglass’s minimalist aesthetic is no longer. Instead, the bag embraces a more-is-more philosophy, complete with crinkled leather and elaborate hardware sprawling across the exterior.
The zip pocket in front featuring Balenciaga’s knotted leather pull is purely decorative on the Hourglass x Le Cagole. On the other hand, the interior, accessible via a studded magnet closure beneath the aged-silver B logo hardware, is where you’ll stash your everyday essentials.
Available in a single size and colour, the medium handbag comes in black Arena lambskin. It measures 27 cm wide and 35 cm high inclusive of the single top handle. Versatility remains a key factor, so you can sling it over your shoulder or swing it via the top handle for a touch of vintage elegance.
If you’re looking for a bag that’s just as unique as you are, then this might be your perfect match. The Hourglass x Le Cagole is a guaranteed conversation starter. Priced at SGD5190, you can find it at Balenciaga Singapore’s online store.
