Must Haves #5: Balenciaga Mini City Bag
Released in 2006 and only available in Asia made me very curious about this bag. I love Balenciaga bags, especially the weekender and the city bag. What makes the mini city bag so special and a must have? After the first release of this bag, I just had to see it with my own eyes. (and feel it with my own hands hihi…)
It’s cute! You have to love petite bags. The size is 9’’ x 6.5’’ x 3.5’’, it’s even smaller than Balenciaga first bag (13’’ x 7.5’’ x 2’’, this give you a bit indication). If you love the giant city too, then you will definitely love this bag, it’s just ‘freaking’ adorable. The bag is made in Italy.
The mini city includes everything what you expect from the giant with adjustable straps, aged brass hardware, interior pockets and made from soft vintage lambskin. I love the mini city bag because it feels like it has more texture. It like that all the goodies are all shrink into one small packages. Even when it’s petite, the bag is very functional and good for everyday bag or use it just as a weekender.
This bag is currently retailing for $1,235 while the Balenciaga giant city (the big sister version) is retailing for $1,545. Just a small few hundred dollars price difference.
