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 the raffia basket style. A summer tote take on the Classic City. Very Kate Moss in Ibiza vibes.

Crafted from a pink raffia with tan leather trim with aged bronze hardware.

Made in Italy. Overall excellent pre-owned condition.

Comes with the mirror still attached.

  • Height: 30cm
  • Width at top edge: 68cm
  • Width at base: 37cm
  • Depth: 21cm
  • Top handle drop: 16cm (fits over shoulder)

Overall a beautiful bag and a real collectors item.
