Balenciaga handbags-earnestly dedicated to my dear friend "Bee Nungi"

Balenciaga is a fashion house founded by Cristóbal Balenciaga, a Spanish designer, born in the Basque Country. He had a reputation as a couturier of uncompromising standards and was referred to as "the master of us all" by Christian Dior.His bubble skirts and odd, feminine, yet ultra-modern shapes were trademarks of the house. The house of Balenciaga is now owned by the French multinational company PPR.

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.


  1. i think you forgot to mention the name of the bag.its the "Biker" bag

  2. All bags pics are so elegance. Balenciaga handbags are so popular is because they are made from some of the softest, thinnest, and most lightweight leather available.
