    In case you haven’t seen Balenciaga’s B&O “handbag”:

    “Each of the 20 limited edition bags are 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 the course of several days to achieve a satin finish.”  Most likely a Level inside:[Edit: not a Level?]

    It looks nicely made! When you go to the Balenciaga website now, you will see the catwalk models (some in a cocktail wetsuit :-)) carrying one. I wonder what the collectors will pay for one! Or two as there seem to be two colors. BeoLenciaga.

    BeoLenciaga

    Oooh. Wish I’d thought of that…

    OK, yes, I admit to watching the “51st collection” fashion runway movie at couture.balenciaga.com .  Are those Mercedes face masks limited edition too?  One might be able to afford an in-stock item…  Of course my nice BeoLenciaga would get scratched right away if I went to the airport dressed like that, and security threw me to the ground before calling the Carabinieri!

    For one you must 8500 € pay.

    But it is really worth that price? And what is inside? The specification of a BS A1 or more?

    Oops, right you are — looks like I mis-titled…  Thought it was a Level inside because of the publicity blurb saying “multi-point connectivity”.  But the BeoLenciaga battery specs are 18 hours like the A1(2gen), not 16 hours like the Level.  Also they left room for a purse inside, despite the exterior looking deep enough to hold the larger drivers.  So it is a handbag and not a boombox.

    ^ Thanks to trackbeo for bringing in details from the other two (now closed) Balenciaga threads. Next time we have duplicate threads I’ll instead try ‘merging’ them to bring content together. Apologies to MM and Mr10Percent for not doing so in this case – I’m new to this moderation business! 😀

    Here is something about Miklu Silvanto, Chief Design Officer (and Senior Vice President) at B&O, who obviously is responsible for the speakers bag:
