Cristóbal Balenciaga began dressing royalty and innovating new womenswear silhouettes in Spain in 1919. Until 1968, he built a legacy for the luxury fashion house Balenciaga to stand upon. Eventually Kering became its owner and most recently Alexander Wang wrapped up his three-year gig as creative director.
Twentieth century Spanish royalty boasted Balenciaga’s tradition defying designs and today, American royalty continues to flaunt the house’s heavily replicated styles. Spotted on every stylish celebrity from Kate Moss to the Kardashians, and on fictional fashion queens including Carrie Bradshaw and Blair Waldorf, Balenciaga is hailed an iconic influencer in sartorial history as much today as it was nearly a century ago.
With thousands of Balenciaga handbags available now on eBay, Kendall Jenner’s Arena Classic Pompon Bucket Bag, Chrissy Teigen’s Cable Leather Tote, Kylie Jenner’s Classic Traveller Suede Backpack, Amal Clooney’s Le Dix Cartable M, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Papier A4 Tote are just a click away.
