A fresh and unique shoulder bag from Balenciaga, this one definitely caught our attention thanks to its boxy silhouette that it is inspired by a plumber’s tool box. And oh, the name was already a giveaway. Introducing the Balenciaga Tool Shoulder Bag.
Sporting a grainy calf leather and parading its boxy silhouette as if telling the world that it’s that one Balenciaga bag worth waiting for, this bag is all the more modern and stylish thanks to its detachable chain strap that further bolsters its tough, industrial vibe.
Knowing the needs of a cosmopolitan woman, this bag has a top handle making it a perfect shoulder fixture. On the other hand, you can carry it cross body thanks to its chain shoulder strap. It also features a push-lock fastening thus making it easier to access your belongings.
Measuring 7” x 11” x 6” (H x W x D) inches and is priced $2180 USD, €1955 euro, $3775 AUD, $19600 HKD, £296000 JPY via MyTheresa.

Wanting to add a little bit of a punk attitude to your style but not too sure if you have the courage to pull it? Well, don’t be scared as it takes baby steps until you get out of your style comfort zone and little by little you’ll be letting go of your fears. For starters, why not begin with a bag that has that tough feel-good attitude to it?
Look no further as Balenciaga’s Metal Plate leather shoulder bag surely got you covered. This black leather bag is again the famous motorcycle bag but this time around it is in a shoulder bag version. It highlights all the label’s signature minutest detailing up to its contrasting feels with metals in both golden and silver-tone effects.
It has the following features: made from genuine calf leather, has a detachable chain shoulder strap, a zipped front pocket, with snap-buttoned top, has fabric lining, front slot pocket, zipped coin compartment, two bill slot pockets, and has twelve card slots. It has the following dimensions: 13 x 21 x 3 cm (H x W x D), priced at $1110 USD or €945 euro via MyTheresa.
Is Balenciaga attempting to usher in a new era of label-flashing? Looks like they’re at least giving it a go. I have mixed feeling about these new Cabas totes. On the one hand, a simplistic logo set on beige canvas and trimmed with black leather is so modest and pared-down, it’s chic. On the other hand, a simplistic logo on beige canvas reminds me of a perfume-bottle label, a freebie tote, or a shopping bag (or maybe all three).
Then again, the Cabas M, oversized and angular, and the Cabas S , smaller with bolder strips of black accents, both make for decent ways to get your designer fix without breaking the bank. That’s why I’m leaning towards yes, as long as they’re worn in the right context. Made in Italy and inspired by the sea and sailboats, either of these will make for a breezy beach bag, discreet gym tote, or easy-access carryon. Just carry it casually, and keep the rest of your labels on the hush-hush. Cabas M tote, $865, and Cabas S tote, $795, both available on NET-A-PORTER.

My friend Kate received for her birthday from her work colleagues this Replica Balenciaga bag. I cannot say it is a perfect replica, it looks good overall but if you take a closer look you can be a little disappointed. I know she wanted a yellow bag and this is why they bought her this one but it not a true yellow, it is more like an orange yellow.
The hardware of this Balenciaga Classic City Orange Yellow replica handbag is very dark bronze, darker than the original bag, the studs have a matt finish but the buckles try to shine a little bit. The zipper on the front of the bag is shorter than it should be and it doesn’t zip all the way. There is a space of about half of a centimeter from the place it stops till the one it should. I know this is quite common among replica bags but I have seen a lot of cloned bags that did not have this issue, on the contrary, they looked as they had the genuine zipper attached. But as you can only notice this if you take a close look at the zipper I don’t think this should bother her too much. The stitching is good, I compared it to my authentic Balenciaga and there doesn’t seem to be any difference.
The quality of the leather is very good on this Balenciaga Classic City Orange yellow replica bag, it looks and feels like the original. It is thick and it smells like new leather. This is a very good thing because there are a lot of bad replicas out there that smell horrible, you cannot keep them in the house. There is the same kind of leather used for the overlay of the buckle decorations. I saw a lot of replicas that don’t use the same leather; they use poor quality leather in the spaces that are not very visible. I am glad this is not the case with this bag. There is a mirror attached to the Replica Balenciaga bag that looks like the original one. It has the same size and the same shape. The handles of the bag are very well cloned both on the front and on the back.
The zipper from the underside is really bad. The stitching is awful, very sloppy, I am glad that it is underneath and it is not visible. The fabric used for the interior is black, the original bag has the same color inside, but it doesn’t feel the same, it is a different texture, but the quality is decent. There is a metal name plate stitched inside the bag. The engravings are correct; it looks clean and correctly attached. On the back side of the bag there is a serial number embossed, it is the same number that we can find on the metal name plate, which is good but there is also embossed “made in Italy” that is not correct, there should have been capital letters: “MADE IN ITALY”.
The main issue of this Balenciaga Classic City Orange yellow replica bag is the stitching. It is not very good and there are some places where it is visible, but overall it is a good looking bag. I am sure Kate will enjoy wearing it and her colleagues will be very pleased to see how happy they made her.
