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.
