Hi! I'm planning on buying my first Balenciaga bag and I've pretty much set my mind on getting a black city.

But I'm a bit confused about the price! On the official Balenciaga website it has the price of $1395 but in the reference library another member posted a 'S/S 2010 Black City' with a price of $1195. Was there maybe a price increase recently?

The other question I have is that if I just walk into a Balenciaga boutique and ask for a black city.. will they know what I'm talking about? Are there different versions? I know there are ones with the giant hardware but I want the regular small hardware.

Pardon my ignorance! Thanks!:smile:

Hi, I am sure the SA will know what you are asking for, if you simply say Black City with Regular Hardware.

Just ask them what it costs: here in Oz, the City RH brand new is about AUD $2150 (USD $1970), so there be a difference price across different stores in the US as well.

Oh I forgot to ask... is a black city with normal hardware readily available at all Balenciaga boutiques? I'm planning to go to the one on Melrose Avenue in LA. Does this store have a good stock of bags?

It depends...sometimes they do, I've called ahead of time just to make sure. Traffic down there can sometimes be tough, that's LA !:biggrin:
