Balenciaga goes vroom vroom!
March 15, 2017
This past Sunday March 5 Fashion Designer Demna Gvasalia – creative director of Balenciaga – sent out a new fashion statement to Paris Fashion Show’s runway featuring repurposed automobile objects.
Celebrating Balenciaga’s 100th Anniversary, Gvasalia wanted a new look and an inspiration behind it. Referring back to Cristobal Balenciaga – founder of Fashion House and label – lookbook Gvasalia drew ideas and pulled off coats, skirts, handbags and even jewelry into this year’s event.
Down came models in an asymmetrical coat that’s buttoned off to one’s shoulder, wrapped in a rubber car mat pencil skirt, side view mirror clutch and or car tire covers made into totes. Thoughts behind the designers automobile chic had been on a recently purchased vehicle. Also added to the collection were key strawn necklaces and bracelets of all shapes and sizes. Nonetheless, this new fashion statement left audiences head and eyes amazed.
Before ending the show, Gvasalia’s last set of haute couture were fully oversized ball gowns that have not been shown since Cristobal Balenciaga’s time.
“They are all made by hand. The pieces all came together yesterday, like it happens in couture, last minute, because there were so many people working on them,” Gvasalia said.
From last minute put togethers and bringing back former fashion styles it is safe to say fashion trendsetter Demna Gvasalia broke the record again. Before we know it coats buttoned tight to one side and repurposed automobile objects will seen everywhere in no time.
