Balenciaga Holiday Collection Maillon Money Black/Rouge Coquelicot, $685; Available at Balenciaga

For Fall/Winter 2015, Balenciaga creative director, Alexander Wang demonstrated a perfect balance between his modern woman and founder, Cristobal Balenciaga’s elegant lady. The house’s signature, cocoon shapes reimagined as architecturally stunning outerwear and extravagant embroideries revamped in clean silhouettes, made for a compelling tension between the couture and the street. Balenciaga’s Maillon Wallet takes its cues from Wang’s revolutionary runway collections. The sophisticated structure is reminiscent of Cristobal’s whimsical era, while the unique link closure and color blocked, metallic blue and matte black is very au courant. This practical, Parisian piece is as chic as they come, and it doesn’t get better than that.
