any traveler knows that having a useful (yet chic) bag to carry around while trotting the world is essential. so before my annual trip to new york, i went on a hunt to find just that. when traveling i usually bring one of my balenciaga city bags but found that even that is too big and not all that sufficient being that it's a top-handle bag.
then i saw this. balenciaga's newest addition, appropriately named 'the hip.' this hands-free bag is roomy enough to fit your cell phone, camera and lip gloss, strap is long enough to wear crossbody and the colors..oh the colors! and the best part, your hands are free to hold shopping bags and cafe lattes.
