I've just done a little present to myself a few minutes ago.
Balenciaga Paris book by Pamela Golbin:

A sumptuous retrospective of one of the greatest houses in international fashion
"Balenciaga Paris" traces the designer's collections year by year, from 1937 to 2006, using photos, press cuttings, sketches, and other archival material. The book explores two main periods in depth: 1937-1968, when Cristobal Balenciaga made his name during Paris's golden age of fashion; and 1996-2006, charting the dramatic revival of the House of Balenciaga under Nicolas Ghesquire, one of the most widely admired and celebrated new designers in contemporary fashion. He has co-directed the book's production with Pamela Golbin, curator at the Musee de la Mode et du Textile, Paris, who has compiled the text.
Described by Christian Dior as "the master of us all," Balenciaga's bold genius with cut, line, and fabric mark him out as one of the most daring and original designers in the world of haute couture. His virtuoso command of technique and imaginative exuberance recall his Spanish roots as well as assuring his place in the pantheon of twentieth-century style and elegance. 280 illustrations, 200 in color.

Congrats on this beauty! I am a fan of silver hardware. What an exciting way to start this new year :smile:.
Thank you so much! I love silver too, and this is the smooth hardware so it's a bit different. I hadn't really followed the buzz about the Small City, but the minute I saw it (today) I realized it was perfect for my current needs.

I'm very excited about my brand new arrival, Small City with silver hardware (agneau). I was looking for a smallish bag that holds a bit more than my Classic Flat Crossbody but was still light weight--this cutie fits the bill. View attachment 3563574
