Founded in Madrid in 1918 the House of Balenciaga relocated to Paris in 1937 where it was hailed as "the couturier of couturiers." Current fans include Nicole Kidman. Ultra-smooth, quilted brown leather packs a serious style punch. Detailed stitching on the handles, a tasseled front-zip pocket and silvertone hardware provide the polish. The zip top opens to a handy attached mirror and zip pocket.
