Balenciaga and motorcycle are two words in fashion that are as synonymous as peanut butter and jelly to sandwich connoisseurs – in short, they are indispensable. Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquiere actually created a range of handbags only for models to carry on the runway while showing off the house’s Motorcycle Jackets and it was the fabled supermodel Kate Moss who took an instant liking to those distressed, slouchy and studded satchels. Obviously, when someone as popular as Moss likes a bag, you don’t just miss that opportunity.
Hence, the Balenciaga Motorcycle Bag was born, quickly becoming one of the hottest It-bags at a time when achieving bag-stardom was nearly impossible, what with strong players like the Fendi Baguette and the Dior Saddle dominating celeb styles. Today, however, we aren’t talking about that It-bag, rather, we’re going to be talking about the Balenciaga Motorcycle Jacket, the ones that originally led to the idea of the legendary BBag being conceived by Ghesquiere.
