Making its debut at their Fall/ Winter 2019 runway, Balenciaga’s latest compact Phone Holder Bag launched last Friday exclusively on and is slated to be sold in-stores worldwide. Large enough to fit any smartphone, it’s one of the first items from the collection available for purchase—which can be yours for $1,175.

The inspiration for the bags come from the Balenciaga stores’ very own slate grey paper bags. The reimagined versions come in black, white and grey crafted with calfskin, long, detachable cross-body straps and closes with an invisible magnet. Its smaller rounded handles resembles the fabric handles on the papers. 

Keeping with the theme of paper bags, Demna Gvasalia added flat base and creased sides which folds like shopping bags. They even sport the brand’s logotype used for retail packaging.
