Balenciaga Reference Guide

This post is intended to act as a Reference Guide for Authentic Balenciaga Handbags.
Balenciaga produces several different styles in a variety of colors so it is nearly impossible to identify them all. However, I will do my very best to cover the most common styles.
Before I begin I would like to make it clear that I am NOT an expert in this brand or any other brand for that matter. I am merely a buyer just like yourself who is passionate about designer handbags and happens to own many of both Authentic and Replica bags from various designers.
The information compiled here are what I've learned through personal experience and research. Some are gathered from online resources that I consider to be reliable as well as those provided to me by my wonderful readers and forum members.
If you happen to notice any incorrect information here please DO NOT hesitate to point them out to me. I promise I WILL NOT get offended. Actually I would be most grateful to those who take the time to share their knowledge and expertise. This guide is not just for my readers, it is also my own personal cheat sheet so it makes sense that I would want the most accurate information :).

Here is a great video that Maja created for newbies wanting to learn more about Balenciagas

And here is another great video from Youtube that was recommended by a forum member.


Here is a list of the most common style bags produced. This may not be a complete list so if you know of others please let me know so I can add them.
