Balmain Black Leather Zipper Bag

balmain_black_leather_zipper_bag.jpg

Why hello Balmain, is this the best you could come up with?  I had such high expectations of your bags but you disappoint, season after season.  I mean exposed and opened zippers do spice up a basic black bag but it’s been done done and done by so many designers that I’m tired just looking at it.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate it.  I love the trendy punk rock thing as much as the next 80s kid but this looks like something from Forever 21 that should cost about $39.99, not THREE THOUSAND dollars.  Some of you will try and argue with me that Balmain is almost like couture (key word is ALMOST) but I’m not buying it.  If you do, you’re not fit to carry your wallet and should let me be the trustee of it.

    Tina, you are the best because you are so honest. As much as I love some of Balmain’s fashion, this bag is just horrible. I’m sure there will be people carrying this b/c of the label, but they need to have their eyes examined! Just shows you that money can’t buy taste:(

    Thanks, Ping! I actually know people who will buy it for the label!

    I’m so disappointed in Balmain bags. I’m hoping Decarnin can move beyond slashing and zippers.

    xoxo

    LOL at the ‘you should let me be the trustee of your wallet’
