So a friend of mine recently commented that she’d no longer be able to carry her Balenciaga moto bags when she got older. While it’s true the cool-girl style is often associated with the younger set, it’s not like it has some sort of expiry date – and women certainly don’t have to follow any fashion rules, certainly not ones dictated by age. That said, Balenciaga does offer a more conservative silhouette in the Papier Leather Tote. It’s all about clean lines, with a fuss-free design that’s appropriate for both work and weekends. While I still stand by the moto bag as a timeless bag that doesn’t discriminate, this is a great alternative for my friend (and others) who disagree. Available for $1445 at Neiman Marcus.
