Balenciaga has opened pre-orders for a graffiti-adorned Explorer neck pouch and has dropped two clean embossed iterations for this season’s carry options.
All three Explorer neck pouches are made from Arena lambskin leather — the buttery soft crinkled material synonymous with Balenciaga designs from the past — and feature semi-shiny palladium hardware. The white graffiti piece features addresses, websites, branding and a map scribbled onto its otherwise clean facade, and is paired with a black drawcord.
The black and red iterations are simply embossed with white Balenciaga branding on the front and are also paired with a black drawcord. All three bags feature front zip fastening, a larger interior pocket with velcro fastening, and hang at 43cm long. The graffiti Explorer is priced at $850 USD and is available for pre-order, while you can pick up the black and red version for $695 USD now from Balenciaga boutiques and online.
If you’re looking for something a bit more practical, then take a look at the Balenciaga x Barneys New York deli bag, which is releasing for Pride month.
