Under the creative direction of Demna Gvasalia, Balenciaga’s latest designs are experimental and contemporary, placing the house at the forefront of luxury streetwear fashion. The striking Triangle Duffle S shoulder bag is typical of the brand’s new, cooler aesthetic. Made in the softest Italian-crafted calfskin, it features two handles, a detachable silver chain and the Balenciaga logo printed across the bottom. With a shape inspired by ski boot carriers, the bag is sure to make a statement, whether in the featured hot orange or cobalt blue, white or green. The label’s founder Cristóbal Balenciaga was one of Spain’s most revered designers. Born in the Basque country, he opened his first boutique in San Sebastián in 1919 and soon expanded, with branches in Madrid and Barcelona. He designed for Spanish Royalty and is said to have inspired others such as Oscar de la Renta. The brand is today based in Paris.
