I get to know Balenciaga first through its Motorcycle bags carrying by various top fashion stars like Jennifer Connelly and Nicole Kidman. The motorcycle pattern used to be the synonym of style and personality for many people. But this is definitely not the only style. As a matter of fact, the Cassette shape is another unique creation of Balenciaga. This Balenciaga Cassette Medium Handbag mixes all the merits of an ideal handbag.
Firstly, the material is the most important element. As to this Balenciaga handbag, it is crafted in lizard embossed calfskin which gives a totally different touch of high quality leather. Its interior is made of fine textile lining to form inside zip pocket with Balenciaga embossed leather tag. Yes, that is what Balenciaga does, hiding the brand tag inside. It is low key rather than no-key. A real good bag does not need the kind of showy thing. Secondly, a functional bag should have a modest capacity. This Italy made bag measures 12''×6''×9'', which is spacious enough for holding all your daily accessories. As I see it, the bag can also serve as a medium luggage bag when going out for a short time trip.
Thirdly, fine and versatile handles are extremely important for a practical bag. This designer handbag features double braided leather handles and a removable shoulder strap. The handle is a combination of gold-plated metal hardware and fine leather strip. The braided leather handle is something you have never met before. Rather than the commonplace pigtail, the handle is hand-woven with ultra craftsmanship. The bag has one zip closure and attached with a leather framed hand mirror. As to the bag decoration, the bag is has several covered pyramid-shaped studs on the front and on the back, metal pyramid-shaped studs on the side and at the bottom. The bag retails for $2,165.00.
