BALENCIAGA PRE-FALL 2017

EXTRAVAGANCE AND EXAGGERATION

Balenciaga’s Creative Director Demna Gvasalia has quickly and steadily established his signature codes for the storied French house via a number of provocative and recognizable statement pieces. Among them are Spandex leggings, floral dresses that harken back to his Georgian roots, skintight pointy boots and the Bazaar bag. For pre-fall, the designer tossed many of the above-mentioned pieces into the mix, adding exaggerated cocoonish puffer jackets in bright pink and sky blue, draped dresses and tops, razor-sharp tailored outwear, all finished off with a cool, triangular-shaped bag in rich gemstone hues.

The designer continues to cull from Balenciaga’s extensive archives yet maintains a strong foothold on the contemporary street scene with its pot-pourri of subcultures. For sure, working both sides of the coin, Gvasalia serves up his very own idea of sexiness and femininity as the new house specialties.
