The gold studded city bag
Monday, November 15, 2010
  Despite the name, this bag is not actually studded. MatchesFashion.com calls it that for reasons that are not entirely clear, since it has no more studs than any other Balenciaga bags, and they don't refer to the rest of their Balenciaga inventory that way. My eyes did not deceive me the first time. it's perforated, which actually makes me like it even less. Feel free to read the rest of this post if you enjoy reading about handbags that don't actually exist. Although this mix-up brings about an interesting question: Have you ever bought a bag online and then felt like the bag's photos and description weren't as accurate as they could have been when you finally received it?
When I first saw the Balenciaga Gold Studded City Bag, my automatic reaction was surprise, mostly at the fact that an all-over studded Balenciaga hadn't been released before. But as I looked at the design, my surprise changed, and now I'm mostly confused that a company that normally uses punk influences in a sophisticated way didn't manage to make a much better studded bag.
  Regardless of the fact that this bag should have come out a year ago, perhaps it would have been wise to keep it under wraps in total. Balenciaga handbags giant gold hardware is a cult favorite but has never been overwhelmingly popular, and this diminutive version probably won't gain much traction either. It's a nice change, but it's not interesting enough to really stand out to Balenciaga fans that are used to new colors, hardwares and shapes four times a year.
  And then the studs are just…underwhelming. From a distance, the tiny, tonal dots had me thinking that the bag was perforated, but instead, they're just itty-bitty. I appreciate that the small size means that the leather will still be able to sag and move like a regular Balenciaga City bag, and a little texture never hurt anyone, but this bag just isn't the best that Balenciaga could have done. Perhaps I'd feel more inspired if the studs (and the hardware) were silver, but even then, Balenciaga is my favorite brand and I tend to hold them to an almost impossibly high standard.
