Balenciaga x Bang & Olufsen Speaker Bag

The Balenciaga x Bang & Olufsen Speaker Bag is the creative brainchild of Balenciaga and Bang & Olufsen’s partnership. Crafted to resemble the sculptural form of Balenciaga’s handbags, the speaker bag is a fully functional bag and portable speaker; a true hybrid that pushes the perceptual boundaries of design and combines the worlds of fashion and technology in newfound ways.

Each piece in this limited-edition run is milled from a block of solid aluminum, before being pearl-blasted, anodized, and hand-polished at Bang & Olufsen’s Factory 5 in Struer, Denmark, over a period of several days for the perfect satin finish. Working with one solid block of raw aluminum allows for a continuous flow all the way from handle to base; the seamless attention to detail is expected of two brands with such a rich heritage of design.

The front of the Balenciaga I Bang & Olufsen Speaker Bag features Bang & Olufsen’s signature portable speaker styling; a perfect pattern of speaker holes meticulously placed to ensure the best sound quality without compromising on a sleek aesthetic. Behind the striking aluminum body lays a powerful portable speaker, offering up to 18 hours of battery life and multipoint connectivity. Although the speaker bag is a bespoke creation with an avant-garde, boundary-pushing design, the fundamentals of sound quality and customer experience is considered at every point.

At the speaker bag’s rear, a door opens to reveal a sizeable compartment wrapped in Balenciaga’s Italian lambskin leather, assembled by hand. Finished with a set of controls placed under the handle, Balenciaga and Bang & Olufsen’s logos are laser etched into the top of each piece.

After a dramatic debut at Balenciaga’s Couture show in Paris, only 20 editions of the speaker bag will be available to purchase at the newly opened Balenciaga Couture store in Paris.
