When it was announced that Demna Gvasalia would be taking over as Balenciaga’s creative director after Alexander Wang’s departure, we knew there was much to look forward to. The youthful, innovative designer has garnered massive attention for Vêtements, which—only in its fifth season—has already rattled the fashion industry with its untraditional approaches to design and production. Oh, and with those reconstructed jeans too, of course.
Gvasalia’s debut collection for Balenciaga was in fact sensational. Everything from the unexpected tailoring to the pops of candy cane print and impossibly cool platform boots made us excited to see where he continues to take the label. Scroll down to see some of our favorite looks!
