    Balenciaga Blue Glacier Leather Classic City Bag with Silver Hardware
    Very Good to Excellent Condition
    15" Width x 9" Height x 5" Depth

    Released in the early 2000's the Balenciaga City quickly became one of the most sought after handbags and helped to solidify the age of the "it bag." The now classic city bag was designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere, the brand's former Creative Director. Ghesquiere kept the needs of the modern woman in mind creating a bag that is lightweight, soft, and stylish. This particular City Bag is done in a muted blue with gray undertones. The bag features an exterior zip pocket, two top handles, a removable shoulder strap, zip top closure, and silver hardware. The interior is black fabric with one zip pocket.

    This bag is in Very Good to Excellent condition. The handles are lightly scratched and slightly discolored, and the woven pattern is slightly frayed. There are a few scratches to the exterior leather, one small brown marking at the exterior buckle, and a few faint markings to the interior fabric.

    Condition Rankings:

    Pristine - shows little to no indication of handling.
    Excellent - shows very minor evidence of handling.
    Very Good - shows evidence of wear and handling, with no major flaws.
    Good - shows moderate wear and is fully functional.
    Fair - shows moderate wear and has condition issues that may or may not be repairable.
