Wang for Balenciaga
Welcome Alexander Wang to the Maison of Balenciaga!
When I heard the news about him taking over, I was more than proud of him!
His own line is already somewhat in line with Balenciaga, if you were to look at some of the characteristics of the exaggerated geomtric shapes, oversized volume, minimalistic aspect.
According to the article on style.com, he prepared the collection in two months! He started in January.
He played it safe going back to the roots of Cristobal and some said it wasn’t as surprising as when Nicholas started the collection. But I am sure, that he is planning to surprise the world in the next collections to come – him playing it safe was a part of the plan.
Can’t wait till next collections!!
Here are some of my faves:
