Balenciaga unveils Dubai exclusive Papier totes
Remember Balenciaga’s Papier collection? We featured it almost a year ago as one of our editor’s picks. It’s sleek, it’s light, it’s luxe and it’s Balenciaga; what’s not to like, right?
Now comes the bit of even better news: Balenciaga is launching a five-piece limited collection of Papier totes in exquisite hand-painted python, to be sold exclusively at the Parisian label’s Mall of the Emirates boutique from August 2012 as part of the celebrations for Eid Al Fitr.

Manufactured in Italy, these one of a kind bags are no longer offered in current Balenciaga collections due to the scarcity of the material.
The rich and distinctive colours offered – Militaire, Prairie, Cognac, Cendre and Noir – lend a sophisticated accent to the AW2012 WRTW collection, now available at the store. Other features include two top handles, the legendary Balenciaga classic hardware and front zip pocket as well as the typical mirror and tassels.
