New Shoelace tote bag of the Balenciaga brand is another proof in the series, that they can create high fashion from completely ordinary things …
Last year, the world was dominated by their Triple S sneakers, which many described as simply ugly. This year, apparently, we will see everywhere this bag, which is almost entirely made, as its name suggests, from black shoelaces.
Shoelaces are woven to create a handbag, which resembles fusion of a straw bag and one of the Bottega Veneta Intrecciato leather bags, which are and will always be a subject of craving in the fashion conscious world.
This bag is Italian and carries a BB logo. There is no lining and comes with an “unfinished” interior, which means that the ends of the shoelaces are freely swinging and cause mental pain at first glance.
With its price of incredible $2,650, this bag is available for purchase. The fate that hit their Triple S sneakers, whose production from Italy was transferred to China, with the same price of $850, may or may very probably hit this bag. Can we then say that these are Made in Italy products?
