Balenciaga outdoes itself again by designing a bag for a fancy Bang & Olufsen speaker

Ever heard of a handbag that also doubles as a speaker? Enter Balenciaga’s latest edition does just that! Unveiled in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen, the double-duty accessory is an exclusive take on technology and aesthetics.

It features a hard-shell body that opens at the back to reveal a hidden compartment big enough to hold your phone, wallet, and keys. And here’s where things get interesting! The bag’s front features a speaker grill with control buttons placed at the top.

The speaker bag is Bluetooth-enabled for a wireless listening and carrying experience. Comprising a solid block of aluminum, the pearl-based, anodized, and hand-polished edition is made at Bang & Olufsen’s Denmark quarters.

It is limited to just 20 units and features both the marquee’s logos. The bag further comes in two hues – inky black and silver-gray and marks yet another feather in creative director Demna’s hat! Combining Bang & Olufsen’s futuristic vision with Balenciaga’s utilitarian vibe – the speaker bag is available exclusively at the new Balenciaga Couture store in Paris as of now.

There is no clear word on its pricing yet, however, we expect it to be tagged steeply for obvious reasons. Care to get yourself one of these?
