Balenciaga "Strategy bag"

Another new style for this season, the "strategy"
It is a double handle bag which has a detachable long strap. The strap is long enough to be worn cross body. The style looks very different when it filled to top compared to when it is comparatively empty. When the bag is not filled to the top, the weight of the zip weights down the center and the sides also slouch down, creating a completely different look when the bag is carried by it handles.
The Strategy is essentially a smaller version of the "overnight"
currently retails for AU$2,150

Slightly tight when carried on the double handles under the shoulder. The long strap is best carried on the shoulder (not longer enough to wear cross body).
