Fashion Week Handbags: Balenciaga Fall 2012 Balenciaga Fall 2012

Y’all. YOU GUYS. The Balenciaga Fall 2012 runway bags are good. They manage to play with proportion in that signature Nicolas Ghesquiere way without sacrificing wearability, the combination of which is making me absolutely salivate with handbag lust. I never expect to get particularly excited about Balenciaga’s runway accessories because even though I’m a fangirl who loves the brand’s runway collections, the bags usually sacrifice wearability for experimental aesthetics. That’s not the case for fall.

The wide, flat shoulder straps will likely be a sticking point for someone who prefers a more traditionally proportioned look, but for me, it’s that element that makes the bags so utterly Balenciaga. Challenging proportions are a hallmark of Ghesquiere’s often brilliant work at the brand, and to see him incorporate that into such a wearable bag makes me very, very excited. The collection’s school folder-sized portfolio clutches are great too, although they might be too thin to be usable if the leather has any structure to it.
