Balenciaga is a luxury fashion house that was founded in Spain in 1919 by Cristóbal Balenciaga. He moved to Paris in 1937 where he put on his first runway show which garnered him success and notoriety. In 1997, Nicolas Ghesquiere was hired as the creative director of the house and introduced the Balenciaga City Bag in 2000. The bag was different from the popular styles at the time with it’s soft unstructured look and edgy hardware. Ghesquiere gave out 25 prototypes of the bag to fashion models and the handbag quickly gained it-bag status. The classic Balenciaga City bag still remains a timeless piece and is still sought-after by fashionistas.

About Wear Condition

Our team works incredibly hard to photograph & describe all crucial details of each item. We encourage customers to look at the product on several screens prior to purchase as screen calibration may adjust the appearance of a color. Please be sure to read each description, check the measurements, and take note of all wear prior to purchase.
