Pick of the day: Balenciaga Papier tote
Love the Balenciaga City bag but not a fan of having only enough space for your makeup kit, mobile phone and wallet? You can always opt for the Giant City for more room, but we’re guessing its sheer weight (most designer bags have a tendency to be quite heavy) would throw you off a bit.
A more viable option you’d like to consider would be the new Papier shopping tote. It’s simple, sleek design is identifiably Balenciaga (no need to tell people what the label is on this one) and features supple thin calfskin leather with brass hardware.
The size has been reworked and so have the details, resulting in a roomy office bag that accommodates everything you need for work and would hopefully eliminate the need for that ugly nylon laptop bag which everybody here seems to have a love affair with.
Available in different styles, including a Birkin-inspired flap closure, a zip closure, an open shopper tote design, the Papier now sits on the shelves at Balenciaga, Mall of the Emirates. Call 04-3951769 for pricing.
