Balenciaga—now that’s a name that’s been spreading like wildfire all over the fashion industry. Established in the Basque Country in Spain in 1919 before relocating to France, the maison is famous for revolutionizing women’s fashion by developing trademark styles, such as bracelet sleeves, ballroom helms, and never-before-seen shapes. Today, Balenciaga is under the mantra of “destructing to create,” which means tearing down all the preconceptions of the house’s refined, aristocratic, and mid-century pedigree. And that is what pushes them to progress. 

With comfort, functionality, and technicality at the brand’s top of mind, all the while maintaining exquisite aesthetics, here are the top Balenciaga must-haves of the season.


Aged-silver studs and buckles, zip closures with leather pullers, and arena lambskin—the Cagole Boots is a piece that’s particularly hard to miss. The bad-gal shoes of the year deserve the global fashion spotlight in all its spunky, knee-high, pointed toe glory.

Traditional top-handle style molded into a novel shape and minted with the signature aged-gold B logo constitutes the Balenciaga Hourglass Bag. Whether a shiny box or crocodile-embossed calfskin, rhinestone-embellished or denim-made, this beloved piece is the perfect balance between the modern and the classic.

Dua Lipa, Kim Kardashian, Julia Fox, and Bella Hadid are just among the personalities who have an undeniable love for the Le Cagole Bag. This celebrity-approved “it” bag has been on the arms of fashion week attendees with its buckles, tassels, and little mirror screaming nostalgia.

This throwback iconic bag is an ode to baguette bags of the late ’90s and early ’00s. The logo-laden bag, with its smooth calfskin or house staple crocodile embossed surface, carries the elegant functionality that Balenciaga is known for.

Balenciaga’s Upcycled Biker Jacket is the perfect bold statement. Its upcycled calfskin leather is made with a contrasting red quilted lining and designed with notched lapel and zipped cuff sleeves to complete the whole biker look. You can even have it with a removable fringe at the arms. Its final premium touch? The classic silver-toned hardware.

Balenciaga’s timeless pointed-toe pumps are an easy must-have. Work all the angles with shiny lambskin or textured recycled knit, tone-on-tone covered heel, and an 80mm arch—a true, effortless style statement.

Another win for textured recycled knits, the Knife Bootie is a chic and sleek pair that will get your fashionable moment in history books. Did you know that American rapper Cardi B even referenced this irresistible pair in her 2018 hit single “Like That”: “I like those Balenciagas, the ones that look like socks”? And frankly speaking, we do too.

First launched in 2001 by designer Nicolas Ghesquière, Balenciaga’s Motorcycle Bag was originally created as a runway prototype. With its supple black lambskin and rugged hardware details, the timeless piece evolved and got reimagined into many more variations that prove its versatility and enduring style.

Yet another reason to hit the gym or walk around the neighborhood, the three-inch soled Triple S Sneakers is centered on the ethos of comfort, performance, and aesthetics. Featuring an athletic lacing system, clear sole technology, and the Triple S rubber branding, this 100 percent non-leather sneaker archetype is the cool, chunky pair that’s fit for your daily wear.

There really is beauty in simplicity, and a fine example of this is Balenciaga’s Speed Sneakers. Neat, classy, and insanely comfortable, these running kicks made with an upper knit sock are extremely lightweight, shock-absorbing, and wearable.
