Balenciaga SS18 and the Birth of the Croc Platform

Demna Gvasalia continues to shake up Balenciaga’s runway by injecting his normative trademark in the form of self-alterable silhouettes, fused garments, and interchangeable pants inspired by modular track suits. To further exaggerate these styles, Balenciaga’s creative director transforms store awnings into trousers, fringed umbrellas into skirts, and CROCS into platforms, a shoe that left us pleasantly disgusted.

Color Palette: Prints of screen savers and bank notes, tartan, camo, stripes and checks of all colors, purple velvets, orange silks, leopard print knits and more.

Key Pieces: Oversized shirts reminiscent of IKEA bags, candy colored platform crocs, super-spiked stilettos, modular track suit inspired trousers, printed sweaters and tops.

The former fashion industry art director and buyer has shifted her focus to photography, production and fashion editing for Posture Mag, the world's #1 magazine, in her unbiased opinion. She finds inspiration in color, clowns, punks, clown punks, sewer rats, Martha Stewart, things that piss her off, things that make her laugh, the pee-garbage smell of summer in New York City, Heidi Fleiss' obsession with birds and being too drunk at brunch. Any questions?
