Balenciaga has taken a past favorite (ranging from roughly $7 to $13 on Amazon) and given it the fashion treatment — as well as an unbelievable price point.
Yahoo Style rounded up seven chic weekender bags that you can take with you to all of your travels this holiday weekend and beyond.
The latest campaign is a bit of a head scratcher. Interestingly, the traditionally winter-centric brand decided to shoot their ads in the heart of sunny California, and features MacLachlan, Gordon, and others clad in their new ’70s retro-style fall apparel.
Ikea released a short video celebrating the 30-year-anniversary of its iconic blue tote bag — dubbed the Frakta — and demonstrating the bag’s quality and durability.
The 21-year-old model was captured by paparazzi wearing what appeared to be a pair of denim shorts with an oversized, red-and-white-striped button-down Oxford shirt by Balenciaga tucked in asymmetrically, with one panel peeking out the bottom of one shorts leg.
Whilst the rest of the world is catching on to pajamas as daywear, oversize hoodies and puffy coats as trendy items, the fashion leaders have already moved on. February fashion week will see many new trends debut. Here's what we will see on the sidewalk and outside of the show venues.
Of course, they make up for this with invaluable qualities like unconditional love and support (one of the countless reasons we adore them). But believe it or not, your grandmother’s style may actually be on trend this fall. According to the Fall/Winter 2016 runway shows, brands like Miu Miu, Céline, and Balenciaga — all heavy trendsetters within the high-fashion world — have incorporated their own version of the “Granny Sweater” into their collections.
Whoever says you can’t wear white after Labor Day obviously doesn’t know the most important accessory to be seen in this fall is a pair of white heels.
This fall, bags comes in all shapes and sizes, literally! From Balenciaga’s large tote to Gucci’s super-sized shopper to Louis Vuitton’s mini camera box, your outfit will not be complete without a statement bag from this season’s hottest designers. And if your last-season favorite is in need of an update, we’ve got your covered there, too. Loved Chloé’s Faye bag?
Summer is at its peak, but before you know it, fall is here. And I don’t mean just a change in temperature but a change in wardrobe! It’s a good thing then that this fall sees two very important changes in fashion. The new Balenciaga under Demna Gvasalia finally hits the stores, and this is Hedi Slimane’s last collection for Saint Laurent.
Aquazzura has filed a suit against Steve Madden for lifting three designs — Christy, Sexy Thing, and Wild Thing (which Ivanka Trump was also accused of stealing).
On Monday morning in Paris, a stylish group of fashion folk gathered on the rooftop terrace of a Catholic school in Paris to see Balenciaga’s first men’s fashion show.
Leave it to Alexander Wang to take something as banal as a plastic grocery bag and turn it into a high fashion item that costs $2,145. For his final collection for Balenciaga that was shown in October, the designer’s parade of all-white looks were accessorized with bags that were lace recreations of something that you’d get from the deli. Is this a posh reminder to do away with plastic? Perhaps, but one needn’t pay a small fortune to get the message.
There are certain items that will always be in style — the perfect white T-shirt, a seasonless pair of jeans, a killer leather jacket. For spring, the latter is getting a high fashion makeover, with new renditions coming in a variety of unexpected colors and prints. Take inspiration from Nicholas Ghesquiere who delivered pink biker jackets with printed sleeves for Louis Vuitton. He is officially giving us the okay to depart from classic black!
When it comes to red carpet dressing, Cate Blanchett loves to take risks—something she made all the more clear on the press junket circuit while promoting her latest film, Truth. At a recent screening in Los Angeles, the Oscar-winning Aussie chose a white knit Proenza Schouler dress with a high neck and bare shoulders, fresh off the New York runway—paired with crisscrossed Louboutin pumps, an easy updo, and glowing makeup. But she wasn’t the only star with an eye for Proenza this week: Fargo’s leading lady, Kirsten Dunst, showed up to the Season 2 premiere of the hit FX show wearing a sleeveless, olive green leather dress with ruffled hem, also by the label. From Zendaya’s sleek, minimalist Elizabeth and James dress to Lily-Rose Depp’s shoulder-baring, technicolor Chanel top, here are the rest of this week’s best dressed.

Demna Gvasalia of Vetements photographed in his showroom last year. Photography by Roy Beeson for Yahoo Style After weeks of speculation, it was announced today that Georgian-born designer Demna Gvasalia of Vetements has been appointed as the new artistic director of Balenciaga. He will also continue to helm his own line with the collective that includes his brother and best friends. Paris Fashion Week has been abuzz with who would fill this role following the departure of Alexander Wang, who showed his final collection (featuring his famous besties on the runway) this past Friday. Rumored frontrunners have included everyone from Sacai’s Chitose Abe to Alistair Carr, the former creative director of Pringle of Scotland, who worked under Nicolas Ghesquiere at Balenciaga for four years.
Riley Keough walks in Alexander Wang’s final show for Balenciaga. He sure knows how to make an exit.
