Balenciaga City Bag – the Iconic Fashion Household Name.Balenciaga's Motorcycle Bags, now a cult favorite, almost never made it to retail. Designed in 2001 by Nicolas Ghesquiere, the fashion house originally only approved the production of 25 sample pieces, which were sent exclusively to fashion editors and models. Kate Moss very publicly declared the City her favorite...and the rest is history.
In a more recent development to the Balenciaga’s Motorcycle Bags collection, Demna Gvasalia did his own spin and released the Graffiti Collection. The collection includes bags like the Balenciaga City – featuring a more grunge aesthetic with a street art vibe. From high status super models to a classic edginess, like Mary Kate, the Balenciaga City Bag will quickly become your go-to bag. Her infamous photo-op of her carrying her D’eau Vert, a green colored Balenciaga City Bag can confirm. Despite her Balenciaga Bag covered with stains, pen marks, and chewed-up gum, she still looks fierce with her purse.
If you’re an avid concert-goer, the classic Balenciaga City bag is a must-have. With its mirror, which conveniently tucks into its exterior pocket, you can touch up your cat eye on-the-go; with its detachable strap, you can carry it crossbody while standing front row or hold it by its top handle. No matter what outfit you pair it with, the City bag will always give you the “I’m with the band’, rocker-chic look.
