    Balenciaga Gray Distressed Leather Work Brogues Bag
    Good to Very Good Condition
    18" Width x 10" Height x 7.5" Depth
    Released in the early 2000s, the Balenciaga City bag quickly became one of the most sought after handbags and helped to solidify the age of the "it bag." The city bag paved the way for the now classic Balenciaga motocross bag which was designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere, then the brand's Creative Director. Ghesquiere kept the needs of the modern woman in mind, creating a bag that is lightweight, soft, and stylish. The bags became so successful that it has been designed in a multitude of shapes and sizes all keeping the common motorcycle theme. This particular bag, done in a soft gray leather, is perfect for pairing with any daytime look. This bag features two handles, silver hardware, a small pocket mirror and front exterior zip pocket. The interior is done in black fabric with one zip pocket.

    This bag is in Good to Very Good Condition. There are some markings to the exterior, the interior shows general signs of use, and there is a faint vintage odor. This bag comes with a Balenciaga dustbag.
