I was very surprised to see a wallet with "Balenciaga" embossed on it at Takashimaya, one of our upscale deparmental store in Singapore.

The SA says its under Bonia (I believe its a Hong Kong brand for leather and fabric bags, wallets...). Quite surprised that the name is the same! It has a double B logo.

Anyone with more info? :confused1:

This has nothing to do with the bags and things that Nicolas designs.
And only Spain may use the brand Balenciag with the 2b logos.

Yes- I bought myself one. They are a cheaper (but still real) version of the real thing, and Bonia is licensed to produce them. Nice bags- of course not as nice as the original Balenciaga, but rest assured, not fakes!

Here's the article link:

Hi FX, saw yr balck weekender in the other thread... very cool!

And thanks cheeky for the article.

So can I say that this wallet with "Balenciaga", logo double b, is really authentic Balenciaga. However, it is not designed by Nicholas??:confused1:
