The Red Bag
Everyone has that bag color that they simply can not resist, and for many, it is a classic black handbag. However, my personal weakness is red leather bags. I have to resist buying every cherry and burgundy specimen that I encounter, or convince myself that black ones are more practical as an investment item. But more recently I have dismissed these thoughts, and I am fully committed to my growing collection of red bags!
This square bag from Balenciaga is surely not on many people’s lust lists, but I fell in love the moment I saw it. Everything from the bright hue to the gold details drew me in, and I knew that if there was only one designer bag I bought this year, it had to be this one.
Whether you associate red with lust and sensuality or with fire and anger, it is no doubt a strong color.I love the self-assuredness that I feel when I dawn something in this hue and know that I will be that extra bit more confident. Without any hesitation, among all the extravagant color combinations and patterns that Balenciaga has released in this interesting collection of bags, the red one had to be mine.
