Recently,i came to know that Balenciaga actually uses naturally distressed goat leather that gives the bags the slouchy, unique and ultra chic look that everyone loves and adores. Every female celebrity that comes to mind has one.
As Balenciaga bag is very popular with celebrities, there is a huge demand and a long waiting list. Balenciaga does not allow stores to sell their handbags online so if you see an advertisement from a store that says they have them in stock you will need to call them to order. You may be able to purchase an authentic Balenciaga bag on eBay, but do be careful. The demand is so high that there are many fake or counterfeit items.
When purchasing secondhand Balenciaga bags, be certain to check for "Lampo" brand zippers and the authenticity nameplate inside the bag. Also, you will frequently find a "Balenciaga 'Controllato'" slip inside the pocket of the cosmetic mirror.
