See full collection: Alexander Wang’s Balenciaga debut
It hasn’t quite sunk in yet that Alexander Wang is the new designer at Balenciaga, but just a few hours ago he rolled out his first collection for the legendary French house. While it is a considerably “safe” debut, Alexander Wang did include a little bit of his signature laid-back aesthetics in the collection. Some of the shapes and structure of the clothes are not what Nicolas Ghesquière would do with Balenciaga. Nicola can easily complicate a garment into something complexed. Wang has done a lot with the textures here and the most interesting piece is on Malgosia Bela, the severe cracks – how amazing is that?
