Balenciaga Continues to Spotlight the Return of Its Le City Bag

New campaign images celebrate one of the handbag world's most iconic bags...

First launched in 2001, the storied Le City, created by Nicholas Ghesquiere, will be forever known for its maximal but functional appeal. The bag that can do (and carry) it all, there’s a reason why it has remained a staple for decades.

With the original Le City’s relaunch earlier this year, a new generation of handbag lovers will experience an archival icon, complete with its original stylistic details.

This July, the House continues to focus on Le City, highlighting its importance in a just-launched campaign lensed by Mario Sorrenti. The campaign features brand ambassador Nicole Kidman alongside models Kate Moss, Amelia Gray, and Kit Butler. The images showcase the line’s range, with various sizes and colors taking center stage.

While the bag will forever be known for its stylish appeal and ability to resonate with a wide range of handbag lovers, it remains a beloved choice thanks to its practicality. The perfect grab-and-go bag, its leather is relaxed and easy, and this new version is crafted from Arena leather with eye-catching Palladium Vibrato hardware.

Small details make the bag, like reinforced corners with distinct buckles, Balenciaga’s staple studs, braided handles, and, of course, a laced zipper pull.

The leather used is meant to look better and better with age, and it’s one of the reasons why the bag remains such a beloved silhouette. Like the bags that have come before, these new versions will remain part of your rotation for years.

I’ve always liked the “edginess” and “cool girl” factor of this bag.

Hah! No. Still won’t support those who depict paedophilia as art.

I second that! I want them to stay away from the city bag, it’s got nothing to do with the current Balenciaga Team… pls don’t pull it into the mess the brand is today

🤣🤣🤣 Sorry but they never did. That’s your twisted narrative. Was it a tasteless campaign? Yes, absolutely. Your accusation of pedophilia is unfounded and, in fact, slanderous. Time to grow up.

So fabulous! I am so excited they are brining back a green color similar to the one Mary-Kate Olsen carried around.

My favorite bag of all time! But I’d rather by from TheRealReal or another reseller, because the older bags came in such a lot of beautiful colors—the 7 colors currently offered from the re-release are blah. I still remember paparazzi photos of Nicole Richie wearing her city/town/first/velo bags in every color of the rainbow—-loved and coveted her collection!
