One of my favorite, if not MY FAVORITE [read: YES MY FAVORITE] design house BALMAIN, recently launched their new 'Le Pierre' handbag. It's a simple, classic shaped, slouchy and suede handbag with, ready for this, A SHOULDER STRAP! And not to mention, it's already a fashion icon, being seen on the likes of Kristen McMenamy, Eddie Campbell & more. I think that this is a great city bag for everyday and even travel. On a serious note, you don't know how many times I wonder why more bags don't have that little strap that makes everything in the world that much more shiny, beautiful and convenient. Balmain's 'Le Pierre' retails for $4,350 and and is currently available for purchase exclusively at Barney’s NY in the US, Harrod’s in the UK, and the Balmain boutique in Paris, France.
