Available again in sizes City Nano to City L, the Neo Classic’s reviewed proportions, exposed edges, and bonded nappa lamb lining appeal to a contemporary sensibility.

In the early aughts, the Classic was made especially popular by tabloid stars and super models, solidifying its place in It Bag history. Officially introduced on the Winter 20 runway, the Neo Classic is at once recognizable as the original Classic and part of the current Balenciaga lexicon.

Made of leathers in a range of finishes including crocodile-embossed and spazzolato calf, the Neo Classic bags’ tasseled zip closures, and sharpened edges exhibit both the enduring shape of a modern classic and the unique codes of the House helmed by artistic director Demna Gvasalia.

The Balenciaga Neo Classic colorways each include complementary hues of galvanized metal hardware and painted edges. The bag line is completed with a full range of small leather goods, from card holders to pouches with shoulder straps.

The Balenciaga Neo Classic line will be available in selected stores starting on July 20th, 2020.
