Balenciaga's never been one of my favorite fashion houses. The familiar hardware and styling of its iconic City, Work, and Weekender bags never really grabbed me, and it seemed the label was resting on its laurels. But then I met the Carreaux, and all my reservations melted away.
Balenciaga has avoided the fussy styling that usually plagues pochettes and opted for something much sleeker and more refined. The wide woven finish is more casual than an intricate wicker finish would have been, but the high quality leather ensures it doesn't feel sloppy. Black might not be a revolutionary choice but it is a versatile one which ensures the Carreaux will look just as good during the day as it does at night.
The Carreaux is sizable but slender, so you may struggle to hold everything you deem to be essential during the day. If you enjoy traveling light though you'll enjoy the way this clutch works with any outfit.
And well it should for the money. The $1295 price tag is hefty, and probably too high. But if you can make it part of your everyday wardrobe, this Balenciaga beauty might just be worth the splurge.
