The house of Balenciaga has been wowing people with its creative designs for decades. It is even rumored that people risked life and limb by traveling to Europe during World War II just to see Balenciaga’s latest clothing designs. Today, Balenciaga is still highly regarded in the fashion industry. However, the name is most widely recognized for its contribution to the world of designer handbags. The shift occurred in 2001, when Balenciaga’s motorcycle bags made their debut. An instant hit with celebrities and bagistas alike, it’s no wonder these handbags are now considered iconic pieces.
When it comes to Bag Bliss and the Bag Forum, Balenciaga handbags have always been a favorite. And for some readers/members, this was where they heard about the designer for the very first time. Unfortunately, not everyone has easy access to these beauties since only a few select department stores carry them and only four Balenciaga boutiques exist (United States). Originally, Balenciaga handbags could not even be purchased online. Slowly though, they became more and more available. And when Balenciaga began selling handbags and accessories on their official website in 2008, Bag Bliss celebrated!
So you can imagine how delighted we were when we learned MyTheresa.com will now be selling Balenciaga handbags and accessories!
