American fashion designer Alexander Wang was hired by Balenciaga in December 2012 to replace Nicolas Ghesquière. After six seasons, Balenciaga will no longer be renewing the contract of Wang. It has been reported that the designer’s last show will be the Spring 2016 Collection that will be seen in Paris Fashion Week this coming September. Alexander Wang’s designs are mostly sleek, minimalist yet elegant and chic. Let’s take a look at some of Alexander Wang’s bag designs for Balenciaga.
Le Dix bag
Le Dix was the first bag that Alexander Wang created for Balenciaga. Introduced on his first collection for Fall/Winter 2013, the Le Dix line was first seen in tote, and after a few seasons it has been made available in different styles like Shoulder Bag, Clutch, Pochette, Backpack, Wallets and Accessories. Le Dix meaning the The 10 in French, refers to Balenciaga’s original boutique in Paris.
The Maillon Bag is another design from the Fall/Winter 2013 Collection. It features a unique closure and has a vintage vibe. The bag is sleek and elegant and comes in variety of styles. Aside from handbags, the Maillon is also made available in jewelry and small leather goods.
Ray Doctor Bag
First seen during the Spring/Summer 2014 runway show, the Ray Doctor Bag is a clutch bag that features metal bar on its handles. The bag has a sporty yet feminine look. The name was inspired by the bag’s light ray effect from the metal bars.
Cable Shopper Bag
The Cable Shopper Bag was introduced for the Fall/Winter 2014 Collection. The bag has a simple tote design and features cable strap handles with a metal logo in gold. It is made of various materials like Calfskin, Patent, Fur and Crocodile.
Marble Print Bags
Alexander Wang introduced the marble print to Balenciaga when he first started with the brand. Since then, it has been a big trend. The print was seen on various Balenciaga bags including the iconic City bag and Le Dix bags. It was also made available in ready-to-wear items, accessories and sneakers.
