The Spring/Sumer 2014 Balenciaga show saw Alexander Wang’s latest it-bag, the Doctor Ray. If you have been trying to get your hands on said bag, you will most likely have been unsuccessful, as the Doctor Ray is sold out across Balenciaga, with other e-commerce sites writing things like “We checked 451 retailers, this item is sold out.” Needless to say, this make is a somewhat sought after luxury, so it will come as no surprise to you that we, at The Luxury Closet, are – mildly put – very excited to welcome it to our exclusive arm candy family!
Whilst the pretty pink hue adds a feminine touch to the clutch, you can’t deny Wang’s sporty aesthetic running through the palladium metal hardware and structured edges. Also designed in black, white, baby blue, calfskin and crocodile skin, the ‘Ray’ is named after the “ray” of light effect from the closing metal handle bars. And the ‘Doctor’ pays homage to the sturdy bags once used to carry doctors’ tools, which now allow modern-day ladies to tote everything from daily essentials to a weekend’s worth of attire.
The French fashion house has typically been known for their signature bag styles, like the Motorcylce bag, but with Wang taking the helm in 2012, he prompted a transformation for the brand. Updated bags with a modern yet elegant edge and a sports-luxe look filtered throughout has blasted Balenciaga into sartorial stardom, whereby the clothes and accessories are seen on every A-list du jour.
