Creative director Demna fuses that inherently Balenciaga balance of innovation and elegance with his own avant-garde touch. The label has evolved from the heartbeat of Paris to become one of the world’s most influential fashion brands, boasting vast ready-to-wear and accessories lines as well as a coveted kidswear offering.
In August 1937 Cristóbal Balenciaga opened his first Parisian couture house, and in 1951 the Spanish-born couturier became the toast of fashion by creating a brand-new dress silhouette. Cristóbal died in 1972, but his legacy and firmly established design codes live on in the house as we know and love it today.
Iconic fashion house Balenciaga is known for its impeccable offering of clothing, shoes, bags and accessories. The label’s iconic Arena sneakers, Knife boots and City bag are wardrobe must-haves to keep you ahead of the fashion pack.
