It seems like minimalism is the current hand bag trend. Buyers want timeless and simple silhouettes that will carry into the next season. To keep up with the this current movement, Balenciaga has yet again revamped their City by taking away all the flashy hardware and replacing the leather seam lines with perforation lines. This little bag is called the Blackout Mini City and retails for $2100. I think it is a very interesting take on the Classic City and is good for those who want to downplay the attention on what they are carrying for a handbag.
It reminds of Mansur Gavriel style aesthetic of clean lines and not a lot of hardware. It goes with the saying less is more!
