Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia is at it again, although you knew he would be. The brand introduced its Fall 2017 collection in Paris over the weekend, and as is Gvasalia’s way, the entire collection, including the bags, explored and reimagined fashion’s traditional forms. This collection focused mostly on workwear, and for shoppers mostly familiar with the designer’s more avant-garde ideas, the number of traditional accessories that graced the runway might be surprising.
In addition to the boxy day bags and crossbodies, though, were plenty of the ultra-oversized Bazar Totes that have brought Gvasalia lots of attention even in his short tenure at Balenciaga. In this case, they were matched to formalwear in identical fabrications–an incongruous visual choice for clothes that are usually paired with dainty clutches. Check out all the runway bags below.
