In a day and age where you can personalize just about anything (even your jeans) Balenciaga just announced they'll be offering customers the chance to add flair to their Fall Winter 2019 collection.
At five select locations throughout the country, including two in NYC, Balenciaga will host a graffiti artist on-site to "tag" select bags with either a first name, initials or birth date. Included in the customization option are the new Hourglass bag, a number of styles from the Balenciaga Shopping line, and the hot-right-now Shopping Phone Holder Bag.
Resembling the classic rectangular shape of a paper shopping bag, the Shopping Phone Holder Bag is available in black, white and grey and is designed by Creative Director Demna Gvasalia. Made of luxe leather, it fits any sized smartphone and can be worn with or without the removable crossbody strap. (What better way to store and carry your prized possession than within another prized possession?)
The dates and locations are:
- New York Saks – September 5-8
- LA Maxfield – September 12-15
- Balenciaga Madison – September 15-20
- Balenciaga Rodeo Drive – October 24-30
- Balenciaga Miami Design District – December 4-8
When the bold colors of the bags are artfully tagged, an element of powerful street art combines with classic Balenciaga designs to create a personalized statement piece that's sure to turn heads.
