Continuing with their minimalism aesthetic (see previous post on their Blackout collection), Balenciaga has introduced the City Mute. The name is very peculiar but this new style moves their famous hardware studs to the sides of the bag and shifts the exterior zip pocket upwards. The shape is simplified with straight lines and the whip stitch lacing is no longer on the handles. By doing this, it makes the bag far less "busy" looking, hence creating another minimalist version of the the Motorcycle line. Its very refreshing to see that they will take a classic and spin it into something that is on trend right now.
