Nicolas Ghesquiere is THE hottest designer of the season, flip through any fashion mag this month and you will see his tres adorable bubble dresses and bowler hats for Balenciaga’s fall collection. We love the silhouette he created for fall, enough of hoochie mamas with halter tops and jeans! Viva glamour and dressing well! We’re also quite pleased with his latest bag creations. These chic bowler style handbags will give the tired old motorcycle le dix bag a run for the money! We love the casually elegant quilted version, it’s destined to be a classic, that is if Nicole or Lindsay doesn’t ruin it. Call Balenciaga store in New York for details 212-279-4440.

    Thank you Bag Snob for finally featuring my favorite designer! I love these bags! How much are they? I completely agree, they are much more classic than the le dix motorcycle bag. Once again, your taste proves to be impeccable. I love bag snob!

    Is it just me or is the bag just a padded version of the le dix? It’s a bit Chanel-esque, too. Whatever the case, I agree – it will be quite popular.

    Hi Bag Snob ,

    I’ve been reading your site to get updated on the latest IT bag !! I absolutely love the latest Whistle and Matelassé bag from Balenciaga! Now, here’s where i’ll need to seek the divine bag snob for her opinion……… (1) If i’ve got to choose one IT bag for fall, which one should i get ? The balenciaga whistle ? The YSL reversible ? The Muse ( is it still hot?) Anything from chanel ?Any other suggestions? (2) Which has more snob appeal , the balenciaga whistle or Matelassé ? Please do give your opinions…i so trust your taste 🙂

    Hi, we love the Matelasse, which is the quilted bag on the right. Best, The Bag Snob

    I recently purchased the Matelasse in Cognac, the one color that I haven’t seen on a single celebrity, past or present. I absolutely love this purse. This is definitely a classic and a major upgrade from those motorcycle bags I from uptown to chinatown in New York. I’m debating acquiring another one in black but I don’t want to get too crazy. This is certainly worth considering if you are looking for something timeless and not carried by many people. I also like bags from Marc Jacobs, Chloe, and Chanel (just to give you an idea of my arm candy taste).
