Bad News: Price Increase Effective Next Month!

Starting May 1, 2010, a price increase will be effective on selected popular Balenciaga styles.  To be honest, I do not think it should happen because didn't they just have one a little while ago?  I would only agree to this is if they switch back to Chevre leather, and they haven't.

Aloha Rag was kind enough to give us all a heads up on this announcement.

PRICE INCREASE: This increase includes all bags from the current season as well as previous seasons. Please find below a list of the new prices for our popular styles and contact us if a style you are interested in is not listed below.

FIRST $1245
GIANT FIRST $1595

GIANT CITY $1795
COVERED GIANT CITY $1945

 The new price increase ranges anywhere from $50 for regular hardware to $100 - 150 for giant hardware.  


Oh btw, they just got in a Sorbet Giant Hip, price $745.  Email them at love@aloharag.com if interested or if you have any questions on the price increase. 


Can you believe that in 2006 the first retailed $995? Well over the course of four years the SAME bag has gone up $245!
