Personalise Your Balenciaga Hourglass Bag

This month, coinciding with London Fashion Week, you can put your own unique spin on the lusted-after Balenciaga Hourglass bag, with complimentary customising at the Balenciaga Sloane Street boutique from Friday 13 to Tuesday 17 September.

For autumn/winter 2019, Demna Gvasalia paid homage to the classic mid-century structured silhouettes favoured by Cristóbal Balenciaga and the Hourglass bag, with its dramatic curvilinear base and ladylike top handles, is one of the hottest new bags of the season. Many an editor sat up straighter on the front row when it made its debut on the Parisian catwalk.

Crafted from sleek calf leather, minimally detailed with the label’s newest “B” logo in gold, you can pop it over your elbow or attach the shoulder strap to go hands-free.

Graffiti artists will also be applying their skill to personalising small leather goods like card cases and keyrings (hint: Christmas is not as far away as you think…), and if you’d rather put your own spin on another bag style, just speak to a member of staff.


From Friday 13 to Tuesday 17 September. For more information, please call the Balenciaga Sloane Street boutique on +44 (0)20 3425 8000
