The Balenciaga Lariat Bag Turns 10



    Believe it or not, it's been 10 years since Balenciaga's iconic—and oft-copied—lariat bag made its debut, dangling on the forearms of starlets and socialites galore. And to celebrate its first decade in predictably-high style, the label has released a special-edition lizard-embossed lambskin version. Surprisingly, the bag's only sold out in one color at the moment (an icy, greyish shade known as "Fer") but it's still available in navy and black—for now at least. To anyone with $1,245 burning a hole in her current pocketbook, pick yourself up a little birthday something.
