Balenciaga Blue Leather Part-Time City Bag

Balenciaga Blue Leather Part-Time City Bag

Sold out
Free Shipping in the UK & Europe.

Originally released in 2001 during then-creative director Nicolas Ghesquière’s tenure, the City was previously known as the Motorcycle City Bag and became one of the fashion house’s most coveted designs.

Ironically, the handbag’s appeal lay exactly in its logo-less, relaxed and unstructured silhouette, and there was hardly a Noughties It girl that wasn't carrying one everywhere. Moss wore hers religiously, as did the Olsen twins and Nicole Richie

This is a Part-Time City bag, with its signature chunky textured rivets and hardware.

Crafted from a super soft blue Agneau (lambskin) leather, shiny silver hardware and lined with a black cotton lining.

This bag still has the original mirror plus the longer shoulder strap.

Made in Italy. Overall good vintage condition, with some wear to the base corners and colour safe to the handles.

  • Height: 29cm
  • Width: 35cm
  • Depth: 15cm
  • Top handle drop: 16cm
  • Shoulder strap drop: 58cm

Overall a beautiful bag and a real collectors item.
