Perforated Leather Balenciaga Bags

In addition to introducing Rose Gold Hardware & straw canvas bags this season, Balenciaga is also introducing a new type of leather... with tiny perforations all over.  It is reminiscent of Louis Vuitton Perfo line that was released a few years ago.  I have not seen these in real life, but they certainly look interesting.  The entire bag is not perforated, only the main body, so the trim and handles are still agneau (lambskin) leather.  I must say the Papeete Twiggy looks very pretty with the perforations.  I wonder if these will last longer than opposed to traditional leather?

Cult Status's (boutique in Australia) blog has some amazing detailed photographs of some Perfo bags, so I'm just going to post a couple on here.
