Balenciaga leather goods: the best-selling pieces.
Lots of Balenciaga bags have achieved record-breaking numbers of products sold. The legendary Classic First is one of those designs. Launched in 2000 by Nicolas Ghesquière, the handbag - which is made of soft lambskin - is a sure-fire winner. The format is practical, the detailing is elaborate, and the finish is of the very best quality. Modern and stylish, the Classic First is a 2-in-1 design that can be carried on the arm or over the shoulder thanks to its shoulder strap.
Legendary designs just keep on coming at Balenciaga.
In the 1970s, after the death of its founder, the House of Balenciaga faced the challenge of rising from the ashes and it was too hard an ask. In 1997, Nicolas Ghesquière took over the mantle - and the luxury brand finally turned the corner. In 2001, Balenciaga joined the Gucci group and that gave leather goods their second wind. It was the era that saw the birth of iconic bags like the City and the First. The future was assured...
A new visual identity that impacted leather goods also.
The strength of the House of Balenciaga is the ability to hold on to its legacy, while simultaneously keeping its eyes on the latest trends. The brand is adept at injecting modernity into its collections to ensure an ever-young and young-at-heart customer-base. This gives the label, which overhauled its visual identity in 2017, appeal in the eyes of generations of all ages.
Almost one century after it was founded, the Balenciaga brand has a modern, on-point signature image. From now on, the understated new minimalist logo will adorn numerous designs from the collections, and that includes clothes, handbags and footwear. The following bags are perfect examples of this:
