Introducing The Balenciaga Ghost Bag

First seen during the Balenciaga Summer 20 fashion show, the BALENCIAGA GHOST BAG is so named for its relative lack of branding. Like the uniform- inspired garments of the current collection, the Ghost Bag is designed to be practical and formal as opposed to standing out.

An embossed logo is barely detectable on the bag’s front, and another is hidden, on an invisible clasp beneath a flap with a slightly curved edge.

The Ghost Bag’s strap is punctured with holes, as it references and functions like a classic adjustable belt. Its slack is held in place by a single belt loop. A uniquely designed metal buckle and metal-edged tip correspond to individual colors and materials.

The first offerings from the line come in an array of styles, shapes, and sizes, and in shiny leather, either embossed with a crocodile or lizard skin texture, or smooth. Colors are neutral and classic: black, camel, white, bright red, and gold.

Some are marked with white graffiti that spells out “BALENCIAGA,” as if on a blank wall, which only further emphasizes the anonymity of the Ghost Bag’s design.
