The name and sculptural shape of Balenciaga’s green Hourglass Sling bag nods to founder Cristóbal Balenciaga’s signature silhouette that challenged the zeitgeist of the 1950s and 60s – an ideology shared with current creative director Demna Gvasalia. It’s made in Italy from crocodile-effect leather with a silver B-logo charm on the front flap. Carry it against a coordinating hue to echo the label’s maximalist aesthetic.
