Balenciaga First Marks the Beginning of the Iconic Balenciaga’s Motorcycle Bag Collection.Balenciaga’s Motorcycle Bag Collection is what caused fashion frenzy, but that is not how it started. Designed by then creative designer, Nicholas Ghesquiere, the Balenciaga First bag named after being the first of the collection - debuted in 2001. Its lack of structure and softness made it very different than popular bags of the time, which caused the design not to be produced. It was supermodel Kate Moss who took an interest in the bag that started it all. The Balenciaga First Bag was originally exclusively sold in Barneys, US; the limited supply indeed helps increase the demands for the First.
Balenciaga First share similar features to the City, with Balenciaga Motorcycle Bag Collection’s iconic detailing: studs, buckles, tassel zipper pulls, and whipstitched top handles. Their similar designs are drawn by their significant size difference. The Balenciaga Classic First is the purse that can carry all your essential and no more than that.
For an on-the-go lifestyle, the Balenciaga First Bag will keep your hands free. With its detachable strap you can wear it crossbody or hold it by its top handle. It’s the perfect size to carry your wallet, phone, gum, and make up essentials. So, whether you’re out and about with your girlfriends or going from rack to rack at your favourite store, you are not restricted.
