Balenciaga First Marks the Beginning of the Iconic Balenciaga’s Motorcycle Bag Collection.Balenciaga’s Motorcycle Bag Collection is what caused fashion frenzy, but that is not how it started. Designed by then creative designer, Nicholas Ghesquiere, the Balenciaga First bag named after being the first of the collection - debuted in 2001. Its lack of structure and softness made it very different than popular bags of the time, which caused the design not to be produced. It was supermodel Kate Moss who took an interest in the bag that started it all. The Balenciaga First Bag was originally exclusively sold in Barneys, US; the limited supply indeed helps increase the demands for the First.
