Balenciaga Makes Dirty A Fashion With Balenciaga Triple S Sneakers

You know what? Balenciaga has quickly become the designer-label-we-love-feature because, in recent years, its products have, in recent years, never failed to leave us bewildered.

Balenciaga Lends Lambskin To Cheap Plastic Shopping Bag. Yes, Again.

Ah… we finally figured out what Balenciaga is up to this year. This year, it is all about “inspired-by” theme. Instead of dreaming up fashion pieces from the ground up, the Parisian fashion label must have thought turning everyday items into upmarket versions is a fun thing to do. It probably is because I must admit Balenciaga’s recent products did put a smile on my face, starting with turning cheap, nylon red-white-blue bag and Ikea Frakta bag into a luxury versions, and more recently, a cat mat skirt. Today, we hear that shopping bags are also in order too. Continue reading Balenciaga Lends Lambskin To Cheap Plastic Shopping Bag. Yes, Again.
