Ten Loves: Balenciaga Rodeo Bag

The Wild West, barren landscapes, tumble weed galore, cowboys hollering at every corner… can you picture it? Well, that’s the exact opposite of the desired mood for Balenciaga’s brand spanking new Rodeo bag.

First seen on the SS24 runway, the bag is named after Rodeo Drive, not the equestrian sport, and is a versatile accessory available in either black, grey or white leather with gold or silver hardware. With an intentionally slouched shape that sees the front compartment falling open (like it should be for any good It-girl on the go), and a worn finish, the bag gives the illusion that it has passed through time, all the while ageing like a fine – exceptionally expensive, mind you – wine.

Now how could this bag get any more spectacular you ask? Well we’ll tell you! Balenciaga has included overtly cluttered versions of the Rodeo too, especially for anybody who prefers that chaotic-chic aesthetic, proving that less is never more in this instance. Mimicked through bustles of keys which drape from the sides, heart shaped mirrors clutching to the ends of chunky tarnished chains, thick woven tassels scraping the bags edges alongside souvenir-style adornments – there’s even locks to keep all your precious belongings safe.

In a new campaign, Kim K has stamped her mark of approval, modelling the at once edgy, chic and timeless bag while standing in her closet. Want one? We know you do. Get yours here.
