Story: The Classic First of Balenciaga Bag

It-bag among it-bags, the First Classic of Balenciaga is part of these best-sellers of leather goods became iconic within two decades. Chronicle of a success that does not seem to run out.

Designed in 2000 by the Director artistic Nicolas Ghesquière, the Classic First bag was presented to the public on the occasion of the collection spring-summer of the following year. And it didn’t take very long for the iconic handbag stands out as one of the must-have highlights of the red carpets. We saw, in turn, Naomi Watts, Bar Refaeli, or even Charlotte Gainsbourg proudly display this fashion accessory.

I must say that creating displays strong arguments to seduce women from around the world. Mainly made in soft lamb, the First Classic has all the codes that are the hallmark of the Balenciaga brand: leather, aged brass strips, mirror, handles sewn by hand… In short, the it – bag is a Balenciaga pure juice that is stylistically resolutely modern.

In tune with the times and with the multiple needs of women, the model may be worn according to two possibilities: under the arm or shoulder with the removable shoulder strap. Perfect for a cocktail party as for a day’s work so.


The First Classic, symbol of renewal at Balenciaga


After the death of its founder in 1972, the House of Balenciaga barely bounce. It will take until 1997 and the arrival of Nicolas Ghesquière in the artistic direction of the brand to have the renewal point the tip of his nose. If the young designer is inspired by the legacy of the master, he does not hesitate to breathe a breath of modernity and impertinence in his creations. And it works! Balenciaga seems to wake up from a long sleep, well rested and in good shape to conquer new markets.

In 2001, the brand joined the Gucci fold and benefits from the international aura of the booming luxury purses. Leather goods contributes greatly to this quasi-resurrection. It-bags follow one another and are a craze of the female audience. City Bag to the Lariat through the First… The creator draws women to create both trend and practical models. After fifteen years in the corridors of the House, Nicolas Ghesquière left to sail to new horizons and quickly joined Louis Vuitton. He was replaced by Alexander Wang in 2012 then by miles Gvasalia in 2015.
