Balenciaga brings back the iconic “Motorcycle” City Bag, and this time with sustainable production

Balenciaga first launched their popular Le City bag in 2001, and this month it makes a comeback with the same style, and crafted with Arena lamb leather fitted with Palladium Vibrato hardware.

The bags are hand-assembled, and feature a construction of 25 panels that replicate the vintage versions. There’s the familiar braided leather handles, removable strap, reinforced corners, studs, zipper pulls and metal buckles; and with use over time, the leather gets softer and more distressed, creating a unique patina that doesn’t grow old.

The campaign features British fashion icon Kate Moss, Danish model Mona Tougaard, Chinese actress and singer Yang Chaoyue, and Korean singer Juyeon. See the images below.

The new Balenciaga LE CITY comes in medium (from $3,900) and small (from $3,290) sizes, and in shades of black, citrus, green, lilac, metallic grey, metallic silver, optic white, screen blue, and stone beige.
