Lately, Balenciaga has released a new series for men – Phileas. Phileas is a complete break way from the designer house classic and iconic motorcycle design that Nicolas Ghesquiere has invented and developed since 2000. The Phileas is still a Balenciaga at heart and yet it looks completely different. Wang has released two items under the Phileas series – a tote and a computer bag.
I love the tote so much. It is simple, elegant and fashionable. Tote is such a versatile fashion accessories. It can fit an iPad, documents, wallets and other office essentials when you go to work, meet clients etc. I think this would make quite a good travel accessory too for those who are making a short travel trip. The tote is such a good travel companion to have all your travel essentials and technology gears all at one place and still looking so stylish and fashionable.
Despite tablets are increasing their popularity among the society, I still think there are times a tablet cannot replace a laptop. For those of you who still need a laptop on a daily basis, work, meeting, travelling, I reckon this Balenciaga Phileas Computer is another great accessory to add on to your wardrobe. Simple, clean and elegant – it is all a man needs for his work and travel.
I really love this seasonal collection from Balenciaga. Wang has taken a step away from the classic and iconic motorcycle design and yet they are still Balenciaga at heart. It is really something I love to see and I cannot wait to see more from Wang during his time as the Creative Director of Balenciaga.
