So the much coveted Balenciaga motorcycle bag is not on the Balenciaga FW05 bag collection anymore. Instead, we have the box, the shopping and the twiggy. But would Balenciaga's "it" bag status be preserved for the next season?
My verdict? I don't think so. Frankly, after seeing it absolutely everywhere for the past year or so, I've just had about enough of it. Besides, they don't even sell the original "it" motorcycle bag anymore. I have personally come into contact with the box and the twiggy-in exactly these colors too-and the twiggy is too small while the box is too fat. It just lacks the "just right" quality of the original. It is time fashion moved on to the next "it" bag.
