A selection of Balenciaga stores are hosting a special customization service -- there are two locations in New York City that are inviting customers to decorate their own Winter 2019 bags. There is a graffiti artist on-site and the bags can be personalized with the customer's birthdate, initials, or their first name.
The bags that are available for customization include the latest Balenciaga Hourglass bag amongst additions styles in a selection of materials and sizes. Some of the tonal options include the bold red, acid fuchsia, or more muted options of billboard white, dement gray, or pavement black. The graffiti designs inform the luxury of carrying goods with a touch of the urban design language in a way that fuses high fashion with street culture. The first launch will take place at Saks Fifth Avenue's Balenciaga store from September 5th to 8th with a second launch to follow on Madison Avenue on September 15th to 20th.
