Balenciaga pares back its usual motorcycle aesthetic to create something much more elegant with this Tube Tote.
This is a real departure for the brand, something that’s much cleaner and more reserved than its usual offerings. Ordinarily Balenciaga is a bit heavy-handed with its hardware, but here we only see metal on the top closure and front zippered pocket. The lack of metal works with the gentle blush pink color to create a tote that’s soft and feminine, without being sugary. I’ve never seen pink look quite as elegant as this. It’s a shade that could work as easily in the office as it would after quitting time.
The Tube tote is just as luxurious inside as it is on the exterior. It’s enormous and lined with suede for that extra dose of opulence. A leather framed hand mirror is another unexpected and welcome touch. A zippered pocket would have come in handy, but with two open pouches inside and that zippered pocket on the front I’m not about to gripe about its absence. The handles are a bit shorter than I’d like, but there’s a detachable long strap on hand for comfortable over-the-shoulder wear.
Balenciaga fans may find the Tube Tote a bit buttoned up for their tastes, but I appreciate the label exploring its more conservative side.
