Balenciaga Motorcycle Bag v Gigi Motorcycle Bag...

One of the most notorious and well known of all the IT bags must surely be the Motorcycle Bag by Balenciaga. The ingenious arrangement of metal zips, rivets, buckles and leather ties makes it immediately identifiable. This IT bag has been adopted by several famous Hollywood celebrities including Mary-Kate Olsen, Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan and Christina Aguilera to name but a few. English fashionistas would have also noticed Victoria Beckham parading around with one on her arm.

 City by Balenciaga £895.00

Following the tremendous success of the original Motorcycle Bag, Balenciaga went on to make variations based on the same design in a variety of different colours and sizes which they have named City, Giant City, City Patchwork, Giant City Rose Gold, Covered Giant City, First, Giant First, Part-Time, Giant Part-Time, Work, Giant Work and Covered Giant Work.

And if that’s not enough choice, you can now also have Holiday City, Day, Giant Day, Holiday Work, Town, Holiday First and Giant Hip. A limited range of colours are released each season keeps individual pieces more exclusive.

Whilst you can pay £895.00 for a basic City Bag from Balenciaga, Gigi makes a similar version for a mere fraction of the price at £69.95!
