Under the creative direction of Demna Gvasalia, Cristóbal Balenciaga’s luxury label today walks on a new path — a path that explores fashion where traditional styles undergo unexpected iterations and emerge as current must-haves. Be it handbags, shoes, or chic clothing, each creation by Balenciaga is a beautiful symphony of contemporary aesthetics and impeccable craftsmanship.
One way in which Gvasalia keeps the brand’s legacy alive while catering to the present times is through its handbags. Playing on silhouettes and eye-catching details, bags from Balenciaga are truly statement-making and fine investments for any closet. One such bag is the Ville and we’ve made it our Bag of the Week for all the right reasons!
The Balenciaga Ville bag is made for the woman who knows that style and functionality must go hand in hand. As an everyday bag, it meets all the requisites of a modern wardrobe, skilfully adapting itself to suit a work setting, a Sunday brunch, an evening coffee meet, or a date night.
The Balenciaga Ville bag is special in ways more than one. Classic in shape, timeless in soul, and modern in utility, it is a bag that impresses right away. Prominently crafted in grained calfskin, the Ville is available in mainly three sizes, M, S & XXS. It is also released in the mini and large sizes (with/without the printed logo). Just like some of the Maison’s other iconic bags, the Ville is created in a plethora of shades. From vibrant and lively to subtle and classic, there’s an ocean of colors to dive into! The Ville is also brought out as a Day bag that has a minimal design and is suited for shoulder and crossbody wear.
Our Favorite Balenciaga Ville Bag in Detail
A top contender for the face of logomania, the Ville knows what it takes to be termed as fashion-forward and an It bag. Its rounded top silhouette with a reinforced structured base is similar to the Louis Vuitton Alma’s. Dressed in the finest grained calfskin, this top handle bag proudly exhibits Gvasalia’s new logo for the brand printed boldly across the front and back in a contrasting hue. It is held by dual-rolled handles carrying an attached clochette for the keys that open the padlock on the right. The zip-around closure secures the leather insides comprising of a main compartment and a zip and patch pocket for easy arrangement. The rear is endowed with a slip pocket that grants additional storing ability and the gold-tone hardware beautifully complements the classy black exterior. While the metal studs protect the bottom, the adjustable and detachable shoulder strap allows you versatile styling options. Italian-made, the bag is simply brilliant in form and function.
Style Tip: For a chic and effortless look, pair the Ville bag with a classic silk blouse, a Houndstooth patterned skirt, and a pair of Balenciaga Knife pumps!
