BALENCIAGA - The Velo
I don't think we did an introduction of the Velo. First released in SS10, this bag takes its cues from the "City" style. The shape is longer (more square) and it has a long strap allowing it to be worn cross body. It is the roomier and more practical sister of the city. It did take us some time to get use to the proportions but this bag is really gaining a strong following. If you are considering this style for the size and long strap, remember to take look and compare it to the "Strategy", the a very similar in size and function but have very different looks.
The Velo comes in regular classic hardware as well as the covered giant hardware.
