Balenciaga by Demna Gvasalia
The Balenciaga brand, founded in 1937 by the eponymous couturier, appointed in 2016 the Georgian-born designer Demna Gvasalia as head of the artistic direction of his ready-to-wear. The latter became known for the success of his label Vêtements founded in 2015 for which he diverts the normcore aesthetic, a movement that plays with a normality of appearance evoking a refusal to accept fashion. To do this, he takes back work clothes (DHL t-shirt) or urban clothes (a hoodie) that he diverts by simple details into objects of equivocal luxury.
He energizes the archives of the illustrious house from which he draws his inspiration.
Coming from the designer's first collection, the blouse, skirt and leggings set is a tribute to the sought-after materials often printed with flowers, the sophistication of which made Cristobal Balenciaga famous in the 1950s and 1960s.
