Balenciaga Spring 2021 Playfully Defies Fashion’s Norms

Balenciaga‘s runway shows are nearly as headline-worthy as the clothing, which is still spearheaded by lightning rod creative Demna Gvasalia. Spring 2021 is a sort of reset point, however, as the socially-distant Balenciaga team issues a deceptively straightforward seasonal lookbook, which serves to emphasize the quirky garments.   Designed to replicate a buyer’s line sheet — down to the fabric composition and product numbers — the lookbook offers a relatively unmitigated look at the luxury house’s new items, which are particularly playful this go-round. Though Gvasalia insisted that the collection is “an experiment in showing you don’t always need the new,” but there’s plenty of items that demonstrate the Balenciaga design team’s growing surefootedness with its distinctive approach to style. Classic Balenciaga items, including oversized sweaters, hoodies...

Balenciaga’s Fall 2019 Campaign Celebrates Love

Balenciaga just dropped its latest campaign and we're giving you a look at every image from this new lookbook. This beautiful campaign celebrates love in its very many forms, and gives us a first look at what is to come from Balenciaga this fall. Leather shoppers were seen throughout the campaign, and though they could easily be mistaken for unisex, they appeared to come in a men's version and a women's version. The teeniest shopper bag was worn with a cross body strap. The most interesting new shape is a structured top handle flap bag with a bold 'B' hardware detailing hanging from the closure. This bag is a welcome change to the mini bags of the moment, and the images...

Balenciaga Kering Eyewear Collection to Launch at Dover Street Market

Balenciaga is set to drop its first-ever eyewear silhouettes with Kering Eyewear. On par with Balenciaga’s recent store redesign, each of the sunglasses will be on display in custom-built glowing podiums alongside freestanding mirrored walls; these elements were taken directly from Balenciaga’s flagship stores, and its runway shows. From the images, we can see that the new models take a contemporary approach to the cat-eye sunglass design, taking the lens elements past the temples, and back towards the ears. Available in the choice colors of fluorescent purple, sunburst, and grey, each pair features “Balenciaga” branding near the hinges and on the inside of the temples — each of the colored lenses are held together by a solid black frame. Set for a Dover Street Market exclusive launch, taking place...

Balenciaga – SPRING 2019 READY-TO-WEAR

The project came together when he met digital artist Jon Rafman at Art Basel. Rafman was on hand to talk about the creation of the immersive experience. It had the audience so stunned that people were transfixed in their seats for a good few seconds after it ended, trying to process what they’d just seen. “My work explores new technologies and how our society, our consciousness, our interrelationships have changed,” Rafman said. He and Gvasalia collaborated at a distance, with full creative freedom given to the artist. “It was a marriage of kindred spirits,” Rafman added. Well, being in that tunnel, you couldn’t help but feel you were present. Dealing with focusing on the present, with all the roiling complexities, dissonances,...

The study of the inherent possibilities of recognizable products and objects is the design impulse behind the Spring Summer 18 collection.   In this collection, self-alterable silhouettes have been created through the draping of necklines in which two garments are fused. Options for wearing one or the other component arise in this 'dual' series: a trench coat with a jean jacket, a nightdress with a leopard spot dressing gown, a utility coat with a biker gilet, a shirt with a long sleeve t-shirt, amongst many variables. Pants, inspired by modular tracksuits, are also interchangeable.     Further transferences from extant culture are observed in the use of store awnings transformed into trousers and fringed sun umbrellas turned into skirts, screen-saver prints, newspaper...
