Hooked: Balenciaga Bazar Bags
Those enormous striped leather totes Demna Gvasalia showed in his debut Balenciaga collection are now hitting retail. You know the ones. Called Bazar bags, they’re synonymous with knock-off shopping along Canal Street in Chinatown, and reminiscent of Phoebe Philo’s fall 2013 collection for Céline (the show that launched a thousand sniffs of cultural appropriation).
So far, only the blue-black model can be found in Balenciaga’s e-store, in two sizes ($1,495 – $1,695), while other colors can be found elsewhere. Although, as they’re the bag for fall, don’t expect them to hang around for long.
