Balenciaga was founded in 1918 by Cristobol Balenciaga of Basque Country Spain. Royalty, fellow designers and the public immediately adored his designs. They were creative and fresh featuring structured ultra-modern lines with bubble skirts creating a unique femininity. Widely known for the motorcycle-inspired handbags, Balenciaga has maintained its place among the high-end luxury brands over the years.
