Balenciaga hosted a VIP cocktail to celebrate their creation of new handbag line “LE DIX”recently. Designed for the first time by Creative Director of Balenciaga Alexander Wang, this collection commemorates the most historical Balenciaga salon at 10 Avenue George V in Paris, comprising of five stunning bags that take on a squared and structured form that amplify the classical clean-cut beauty and sophistication of Balenciaga designs.
With a focus on the special number 10, Balenciaga arranged 10 tailor made canapés with the colours of the five bags as a theme for their cocktail. These remarkable bags that embody charm and vintage femininity are decorated with a large flap, as well as a two-tone palladium and brushed gold metal lock with an embossed Balenciaga Paris logo as a closing system.
This calfskin leather series with black nappa lining is available in various sizes and styles for daily use, allowing fashionistas to maintain their trendy appearance with handbags in black, pearl grey, forest green and caramel brown, all the current colours of the season. Balenciaga will be showing for the first time, the house’s new video shot by Toby McFarland Pond under the artistic direction of Alexander Wang staring the new iconic handbag line.
A special monogram service was available for guests to customize the metal plate of their Le Dix handbags. This advanced technology feature allows a type of special laser engraving where the classic appearance of an engraved plate is in fact a smooth surface.
