Balenciaga has been a great fashion house for years and years. With Alexander Wang in charge for several years Balenciaga has announced a new creative director Demna Gvasalia. We thought this would be the perfect time to write a small masterclass about this outgoing fashion house.


Balenciaga was founded in 1914 in France. The brand was known as not following the standards and doing what everyone would love to do but never did. Very controversial as I may say. Mister Balenciaga himself opened his first boutique in San Sebastian in Spain where he called his house C. Balenciaga. The French and the Spanish were fan of his outgoing designs and style. Then the Spanish Civil Wars made him move to the fashion capital of the world Paris. Him moving to Paris was the best deciscion ever. Within two years the French loved his futuristic designs and since then Balenciaga has settled as a well-known high fashion brand worn by many influential people.


There are some items that are true musthaves for your closet. The Motorcycle bag is definitely one of them. This bag is a true classic design from Balenciaga’s handbag collection. The light-weight, thin leather gives this bag a luxurious soft touch. The long tassles and small metal buckles give the finish touch tot his beauty. You can wear the bag crossbody or as a hand and shoulder bag Balenciaga has many different sized and colours. A bright yellow large shoulder bag or a small black leather clutch.. there is definitely one that fits your desires.
