Renamed 'the First', this perfectly proportioned, ultra petite edition was only produced for a few seasons. Crafted from a wonderfully glossy goatskin in a beautifully bright, ochre yellow tone, it will accommodate the basics but do check dimensions!
This is a 100% authentic Balenciaga Mini Classique in 'Marigold' Yellow Chevre (Goatskin) with dark, aged brass hardware.
Renamed the 'First', the mini version was only produced for a few seasons from 2004 and is so utterly adorably cute!
Crafted from a beautiful ochre, zingy, citrine toned hide with balenciaga's fabulous, signature, crackly distressing, its incredibly light and just about fits the essentials.
The leather is soft, fabulously crinkly and characterful with the amazing textured and distressed look that form part of the purposeful look of a beautiful Balenciaga.
Tassels, mirror and stitching are excellent. The detachable strap and top handles are firm, well shaped and whipstitching is clean and unrubbed.
Inking (edge sealent) displays wear to both sides of the leather loops that the O rings of the shoulder strap attach to. The darkening is caused by the contact with the hardware but is much less visible to the naked eye than the close up photos make this appear.
Hardware displays small age related spots of tarnish* (which blend with the vintage character of the finish) and the interior is lined in clean, black cotton with a side zipped pocket.
