Balenciaga launched a men’s line
Demna Gvasalia joined the Fashion house in October last year. That Balenciaga launches its first menswear line became known in the spring. «The show will debut the masculine vision of Balenciaga’s new artistic director Demna Gvasalia», — said representatives of the brand. And here at Fashion Week in Paris, the world first saw menswear fashion show by Balenciaga.
The debut collection for men was created under the influence of Balenciaga‘s archives. Demna Gvasalia chose coat created by Cristobal Balenciaga, which was never finished. It became the main focus in the collection, and models opened and closed the show, defiled in coats.
Huge shoulders, jackets and coats seemed several sizes too big, and to contrast them short tight shorts, sweaters, turtlenecks, and jackets, that fitted models tight. The color palette was restrained, Demna Gvasalia adhered calm classic colors — blue, beige, black, burgundy and a pair of bright accents in the form of scarlet, green and purple.
