Just two days ago Balenciaga, currently led by creative director Demna Gvasalia unveiled a new logo for the French fashion house. Since 2016, Gvasalia has been building Balenciaga’s profound aesthetic at such a high-speed, which proves that the Georgian designer clearly has it all fully down.
Today, Balenciaga’s Spring Summer 18 collection debuted in Paris showing Gvasalia’s ultimate work of art and new varying ideas that draw instant brand recognition. We saw plenty from pairs of printed skintight stiletto boots to forward-sloping tailored coats, retro floral dresses and of course Demna’s one and only giant Bazaar market bags, but this time he added leather fringes.
This happy escape collection was all about comfort and also featured the different ways you can layer staple pieces from a woman-horded closet. Models took over the runway with an array of bold statements such as money-printed leggings, cross-body fanny packs in brown monogram, and bright coloured giant platform crocs.
The workwear collection was heavy on contrast of various fabrics; where Gvasalia also sent out trench coats attached to denim jackets, lingerie bottoms stitched to turtlenecks, and lace tank tops stitched to chiffon dresses printed in polka dots.
