The bag in question is the Classic City in the F/W 2012 precollection color Cassis. It's a gorgeous plum burgundy and is great if your outfit needs a pop of color, but you don't want it to be too bright or over the top.
This is perfect for my style because I wear a lot of neutrals and a colored bag breaks up the black or grey canvas. Not to mention, dark purple is my favorite color!
I really like the size of the City bag because it's roomy (I managed to fit in a rain jacket and umbrella), but it's not too big that it'll get heavy once filled. This makes the City a great work bag because it holds all of my daily essentials and lunch with room to spare!
What I love most about the Balenciaga Motorcycle bag is its classic yet edgy vibe. It can be worn for any occasion, whether you're going to work or dressed for a night out!
