Balenciaga knows how to make you talk about his bags. From ready-to-wear to shoes (hello, Crocs), as well as accessories, they do an excellent job of creating conversation pieces.

Continuing in the same vein is the newhourglass. It ticks all the boxes to be the loudest and most unexpected bag yet that literally has “BALENCIAGA” written all over it.

Some of you may remember a certain celebrity, who wore a head-to-toe duct-taped outfit at Paris Fashion Week. Yes, this is the same bag that completed her look. Everyhourglassit is first crafted in calfskin before being ‘stuck’ in yellow tape with black lettering of the logo.

For maximum impact, the tape covers everything from the handles to the exterior, sides, back, and even the inside flap. The same yellow ribbon also wraps around its adjustable and removable crossbody strap throughout. And if that’s not enough logos for you, the Antique Silver B hardware also sees the ‘BALENCIAGA‘ Text engraved along the base.

And while theLittle hourglassIt’s perfect for day to night, measuring 9″ wide and 7″ tall, the verdict is still out on whether this particular style makes any sense. Especially when retailing for4100 SGD.
