 Picture above is from the Fall 2010 collection featured in Rose Gold Hardware is one of my holy grail bags! 
The Balenciaga Work bag is one of the staple sizes from the Balenciaga line, if you don’t know the difference in size check out the general Bal reference guide. The work is the “work horse” so to speak in your everday wardrobe and can fit all of your essential items, including your entire life (whether that’s your two blackberry’s, playbook, iPad and extra iphone — I know there are those of you out there). Here are the essential details about the giant hardware (my personal favorite).

DSQUARED2

Unfortunately, it is rumoured that the balenciaga giant hardware line will be discontinued, whether this is indefinite or not remains to be seen. In addition the smaller hardware, the leather is also changing from what Balenciaga bags have been most known for (mainly the smooshiest of leathers!) The hardware has been around since 2007 and was issued in Giant Gold hardware (GGH), Giant Silver hardware (SGH), Covered giant hardware (CGH) and the newest Rose gold hardware (RGGH).
 
Measurements: 18”L x 10.6”H x 8”D; the size is quite long at 18 inches, you definitely won’t be
Styling: Comes with top handles and a convenient top zip that spans the length of the bag. Interior of giant hardware includes a leather label as opposed to the metal plate on the “regular hardware” type bags. In addition, there are no tassels included with the bag. Bottom of the bag feature hardware feet.
