Alexander Wang's Balenciaga Le Dix Handbags coming this Fall


Newly appointed creative director Alexander Wang is soon to be releasing a collection of Balenciaga handbags for the first time this fall.  The new design looks nothing like Nicolas Ghesquiere's slouchy studded motorcycle accessories.  Instead, it boasts structured sleek lines, smooth leather and simple hardware.

My first impression is that these bags have a very formal business-like feel and that it may be difficult to wear as a casual bag.  It's still too soon to say that these bags are going to be duds, but personally, it will not be on my bag wishlist. 

Other designers who have reinvented their label, for example Celine and their "face" luggage bags have had huge success and created much brand awareness.  So only time will tell for these. 

"Le Dix refers to the original address where Balenciaga was founded,” the designer explains. “It was also the name of the brand’s first fragrance. It was only natural that this heritage also be translated into a bag for this first collection.”  

The question we are all asking are.. will the Motorcycle line stay? Will Balenciaga phase out their biggest money maker and our beloved Motorcycle bags?

We can expect the new Le Dix to arrive into stores August with the prices ranging from $995 to (a whopping) $2250. 

A stroll down memory lane, Ghesquiere's Bag from a decade ago:
