Wishlist: Balenciaga Giant 12 rose gold City

Since its d├ębut in 2001, the Balenciaga Motorcycle bag has officially transitioned from "it" bag to cult classic. Over the years, my obsession over this bag has helped me acquire the ability to identify each model, colour, and leather by season, but surprisingly never an actual bag to materialize in my collection. With Alexander Wang recently joining Balenciaga in Nicolas Ghesquiere's departure, one of the first changes is the announcement that the rose-gold hardware will soon be discontinued. The sentimentalist in me is thinking, maybe this is a sign to finally take the plunge?
