When the Celine Trio became one of the most sought-after bags around, it was kind of funny to me. Don’t get me wrong; I bought into the hype and purchased two Celine Trios and really love the bags, but it’s also incredibly simple–almost too simple. I guess it showed up at the right time, when many shoppers wanted an easy, simple bag that could actually fit a bunch of stuff.
When I got my hands on the stylish and fashionable Balenciaga Papier Triple Zip Around Bag , it was love. The bag rivals the Trio, as it also offers three compartments, but there is a much more distinct style and edginess to the design.
Similarly to the Trio, the bag has a long crossbody strap, but I’d venture to say it might be a tad more spacious than the Trio. The leather is a durable calfskin, and there is a triangular flap on front that is very Balenciaga. The bag’s dimensions are 11″H x 12.6″W x 4.7″D.
