I first spotted the Nude Marble Works XS and the Nude Marble Mini All while browsing the Balenciaga store over winter break in Honolulu, Hawaii. Balenciaga Honolulu was having a special 10% off all handbags at the beginning of January! If you happen to be in Hawaii and find your way into the store, don't forget to ask if the promotion is still going on! The saleswoman helping me wasn't able to say how long the discount would be for, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. My personal favourite, the grey Nude Marble Mini All, came to a total of $1400 after tax and the 10% discount.
A little more about the actual design - The bag is made from calfskin and comes with a thin, leather-framed mirror. The exterior leather is smooth and sleek. Classic. And I think we can all definitely appreciate a bag that won't get caught on our clothes! The shoulder strap is removable, adjustable, and sits comfortably on the shoulder, like every shoulder bag should. It's also not heavy, which is something to consider if you'll be carrying it the whole day.The outside is quite stiff, but it gives the bag a more sturdy and durable feel. The inside is simple - adorned with nothing but a small zip pocket.
All in all, it's a simple but sleek bag. I hope to see more designs like this from Balenciaga!
