Balenciaga Flap Bag


A classic flap bag is a "must-have" item in any woman's wardrobe. While many of us will never own a Chanel 2.55, the most iconic flap bag of all time, we can certainly appreciate its timeless appeal. If you like the idea of the flap bag, but prefer a more modern, subdued aesthetic, I think you'll find the Balenciaga Flap Bag a solid contender for the position. This clean, structured design features several design elements seen in Balenciaga's "Motorcycle" collection. The lambskin leather fold-over flap bag sports a buckled strap with signature shoulder pad as well as the famous attached leather-framed mirror. It measures 11 x 8 x 5 which makes it quite roomy for this sort of style and much larger than many of its peers. It comes in 6 colors, but I prefer basic black since a flap bag is best kept as neutral as possible. The Balenciaga Flap Bag is priced just under $1000 and can be purchased through the Balenciaga website.
