Balenciaga has taken inspiration from classic shopping bags for its all-new black phone case.

The Demna Gvasalia-helmed label recently released its paper bag-inspired phone tote bags, as well as other mini pouches ideal for tech accessories. This time around, Balenciaga keeps it simple with a black calf leather neck pouch with bold white branding across the front, taking a nod to its line of ready-to-wear wallets and pouches released in recent seasons.

Balenciaga draws influence from the shopping bag by adding two round top handles to the squared-off, flat-bottomed bag. The bag opens at the top and sits around the neck using an adjustable leather crossbody strap.

Take a look at the luxe neck bag phone case from Balenciaga in the gallery above, and pick up one for yourself from Browns for HK$6,400 (approx. $816 USD).

In case you missed it, Rick Owens has dropped an oversized silver backpack.
