Good Weekend’s style picks of the week
Balenciaga phone bag.
Lee Mathews “Tilda” poncho top.
Luxury brands aren’t always known for having a sense of humour, but this Balenciaga bag adds a little tongue-in-cheek to its glamour. At first glance it looks like a disposable paper bag, but in fact it’s a textured calfskin leather “micro bag” designed to hold a phone and credit card – or perhaps a single house key.
Balenciaga phone bag, $1200 (03) 9568 661; (02) 8067 9034
Lee Mathews’ Resort 2020 collection celebrates the designer’s 20 years of creating sculptural, relaxed shapes using high-end natural fibres. Her eight architecturally striking stores, located in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, reflect this vision as well as housing a curated range of homewares and accessories.

Ideal for teething puppies, these barking good chew toys from Outback Tails ($19, outbacktails.com) feature the artwork of Indigenous artist Pauline Napangardi Gallagher. Produced with the Aussie Desert Dogs program – an organisation working to improve the health of remote community dogs – the design is inspired by three specific canines (Ben is shown here) who hang out at the Warlukurlangu Art Centre in the Aboriginal community of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. – Frances Mocnik
