Excellent point, Rainne. A. Wang has big shoes to fill, and he might be thinking (incorrectly) that in order to make his mark, he has to erase that of his predecessor's. NG was credited with bringing Bal back to the forefront, and that alone would be in any successor's mind. I must admit, A. Wang/Bal has been making a lot of questionable moves.
I am thinking it's more a corporate decision than A. Wang's. But, who knows. I am sure this has been posted here before but:

Did anyone remember the floral collection from Spring 2008? I'm not sure if it was silk or nylon but I think it wasn't very popular too at that time.

Though I love Bal's classic leather but I like varieties too so I'm actually quite ok with this except for the ridiculous pricing.

I'm wondering what they're doing with the "Le Dix" bags.

Was in a Bal outlet not too long ago and thought I'd see some but nope, not there.
Are they just burning them? lol..
All comments posted about this were cracking me up. I'd buy one - at 90% off! :P.

Call me weird but i quite like it. I guess it will look probably look more interesting with an all black hardware and a little bit of sheen on the nylon. This reminds me of chanel's coco cocoon which is pretty popular back in the days. It feels very luxurious. But they need to add something like a little removable pouch etc to be charging us that much imo.
