Todays busy Lifestyle the Balenciaga best recognised for its line of motorcycle-inspired handbags, especially the “Lariat” what a wonderful piece of fashion for the busy woman.
If the word Lariat doesn’t ring any bells automatically, that may be that this ‘It’ bag has gained two other names over the years: the Community and the Motorcycle—and all are revealing.
In 1997, the designer Nicholas Ghuesquiere was named creative director of Balenciaga, a position he inherited after the tenure of the Dutch couturier Josephus Thimister.
While the iconic house built by Cristobal Balenciaga remained in existence, it had not yet experienced the same immense popularity it had once enjoyed. Guesquiere ‘s minimalist debut for Spring / Summer 1998 was a split that would launch a praised 15-ear tenure as the company’s fashion boss.
Is the iconic Balenciaga Motorcycle “City” bag making a resurgence again? I would say yes and recommend you take a second look and see how you can work it into your busy lifestyle.
The latter style (designed in 2000 by Nicolas Ghesquière) hung on the wrist of every It-girl from Paris Hilton to Lauren Conrad in the early and mid-2000s.
Flash-forward to 2016 and the silhouette began resurfacing when Mary-Kate Olsen stepped out with it. Now it’s reclaiming its place as a certified must-have thanks to its inherently cool slouchy silhouette.
“This bag has been around for 18 years; it became a classic and then somewhat plateaued,” Gorra explains. “But since the graffiti print launched a few seasons ago, clients have been clamouring for it again.” That’s right: The City bag is now proving to be a best seller in 2019.
