    Default Balenciaga Raffia Shopper Bag

    Balenciaga Raffia Woven Shopper Tote


    Beach season is just around the corner and a lot of designers are already churning out straw totes by the dozens. They are literally popping up everywhere! Balenciaga, of course, is no exception. They too have a straw tote that is ready for a little fun in the sun. Meet the Balenciaga Raffia Shopper!

    Now this is not the first straw tote Balenciaga has ever produced, there have been others in the past. Still... I have a hard time wrapping my head around a Balenciaga bag that isn't made of super squishy leather. I mean, that is what this designer is known for. So seeing one made of straw just isn't doing it for me..

    Retails for $1165

    Keep reading my post!

    This is definitely a pool side bag Maybe it's just me, but I hate taking raffia bags to the beach, sand always gets trapped within the woven straw.

    I think the bag is fine, but paying that much for a straw bag? If I had that much money to spend, I'd rather get a leather Balenciaga. KWIM?

    I completely agree! It's really a cute bag, has that classic Balenciaga hardware, but save a couple hundred more and you can get one of their leather bags.. that can be enjoyed year-round and not just in the summer.

    I love that blue color! And I can totally see what you guys are saying about the price tag and you rather owning one of their leather bags for that much. But at the same time it's Balenciaga!! I would love to have this in my collection.

    ...Definitely

    Although I still think this bag is so gorgeous and would be an amazing pool side bag. Here's a shot of the interior below. It's so big! Usually I put alot of junk in my beach bag too. Like a towel, water bottle, book to read, wallet and maybe my ipad x 2 because usually when I go to the beach, Dan is with me. lol




    Straps are pretty thin though so it might be all that comfortable on the shoulder.

    Good point about the straps. Prob couldn't carry very much in there without getting a backache.
