Balenciaga GSH is a European luxury fashion house founded by Spanish designer Cristóbal Balenciaga. He had a reputation as a couturier of uncompromising standards and was referred to as “the master of us all” by Christian Dior. Several designers who worked for Balenciaga would go on to open their own couture houses, notably Oscar de la Renta, Andre Courreges, Emanual Ungara, and his most famous and noted protégé Hubert de Givenchy.
Today, the brand is most famous for its line of motorcycle-inspired handbags created by Nicholas Ghesquiere. The longevity of the Balenciaga Motorcycle Bag, in all its incarnations, is astounding; the design debuted in 2001.
