New Temptation Balenciaga formally opens in Greenbelt 5.

It seems like Greenbelt 5 is filling up and taking shape just in time for the Holidays.

The latest boutique to launch its chic new address is Balenciaga. If you haven't already visited the luxe label's corner shop, facing the complex' Zen Garden, it's must to pencil in a drop-by.

A honeycomb wall showcases Fall 2008's luscious leather bags in austere colors of plum, black, navy, and pine. Envelope clutches, wallets, and other small leather goods festooned with the brand's tell-tale metal bolts are there to tempt you into going the bag-with-matching-accessories route. Best of all the shoe selection has grown in variety, including the safer foils to the deadly silver boots and pointy pumps on the runways.

Enough sighing over those photos in glossies. Go see the real deal at the boutique. It's positively divine.

Balenciaga is located at the ground floor of Greenbelt 5 (Phase 1).
