Balenciaga, FASHION, Uncategorized BALENCIAGA BRAIDS 25 May 2007

My super-talented friend made me a wonderful gift(s) – Balenciaga braids!!! They’re made using an assortment of Balenciaga bags’ leather tassels, braided together and decorated with a sprinkle of sparkly charms. Sooooo gorgeous. It’s hard to capture it in photos, but in real life they’re really delicate, pretty and sparkle in the light. And the braids are really soft since that’s what Balenciaga’s famous for. Best part is that I can hang them on not only my Balenciaga bags but also my other ones. The blue/green braid looks awesome on my Rusty turquoise bag, for starters 😀

My favourite colours? CHECK.
Soft Balenciaga leather? CHECK.
Sparkly crystals? CHECK.
Unadulterated girliness? CHECK CHECK CHECK!


Balenciaga braids!

Hangin’ on my Balenciaga Magenta First

      Off her own bags! And Balenciaga also (sometimes) sells the tassles for $5 a pop

    I’m in absolute awe of them! At first ‘balenciaga braids’ just sounded like something amateur and simply plaiting the tassels but your turquoise and magenta ones pick up the colours soo well along with those gorgeous beads!

    I wannt…but I dont have a candy colour B bag 🙁 I don’t know that’d look good with a burgundy/red?

    • beverly posted on May 25, 2007 at 1:05 pm

      Yeah they look so nice and professional hey?! I put it on my Rusty bag so they don’t *have* to go on B bags.. and she does make them in whatever colours you want (that she has available, of course)!

    Balenciaga Tassels

    Hi. Does anyone know where I can buy new tassels? Mine are splitting. I tried to glue them togother but they still split. I read somewhere that Balenciaga gives them out for free which i doubt. Does anyone know where I can buy replacement tassels?

      Re: Balenciaga Tassels

      You can buy them from the Balenciaga NY store for $5 a tassel I believe

    Nice! I discovered your blog while googling for solutions to my split Bal tassels, and it came up (so glad it did) because of the keyword ‘tassels’ I guess. Love the braid charm, it’s so gorg that it has distracted me from my search for tassels. May I have your friend’s contact details so that I can get in touch with her about directly purchasing one of these braids? =P

      I’m so sorry but this was many years ago, so I haven’t spoken to her in awhile. I’ve also changed email addresses so I can’t search for her contact details!
      Maybe try a search online for Balenciaga braids?
