Balenciaga Arena Classic Mini City & Papier Tote

Joining in on the mini madness, Balenciaga has decided to miniaturize their iconic City bag!  It is so cute and comes with a longer cross body strap!  How adorable would it be to have this hanging off your hip! It measures at about 6.3"H x 9"W x 3.54"D and will be coming in the F/W 2012 colors black, Rose Thulian, Gris Tarmac, Cassis, Cumin, and Latte. Currently the bag is set to be released in Japan first and hopefully the rest of the world later! source tpf.

 The Mini City will be launched in the US in September 2012 and will be $1235 in Classic Hardware only.  It will come in the following colors, black, Gris Tarmac, Rose Thulian, Jacinthe, Bleute and Latte.
