Creative director Demna Gvasalia fuses that inherently Balenciaga balance of innovation and elegance with his own avant-garde touch.

THIS SEASON AT BALENCIAGA

Demna Gvasalia continues to honour the unforgettable vision of Cristóbal Balenciaga, while tweaking it to fit the framework of his own contemporary point of view. The designer's Fall/Winter 2017 collection for the French house features skewed and oversized silhouettes for an edgy update on classic wardrobe essentials, such as the pencil skirt, formal shirt, the puffer jacket and the turtleneck sweater. He infuses Balenciaga's sartorial DNA with his unique edge, playing to his strengths with proportion and volume. Redefining classics, Balenciaga FW17 is, in short, the ultimate of-the-moment collection, complete – of course – with iconic City totes and those pointed sock boots that are on everybody's lips this season.

THE BALENCIAGA STORY

In August 1937 Cristóbal Balenciaga opened his first Parisian couture house, but it wasn’t until after the Second World War that his incredible design talent really came to light. In 1951 the Spanish-born couturier created a brand-new silhouette, broadening the shoulders and removing the waistline. He continued to innovate with shapes that the world had never seen before, creating the likes of the tunic dress and kimono coat. Original Balenciaga haute couture creations are still considered masterpieces today, in particular the sculptural pieces produced throughout the ’50s and ’60s. Cristóbal Balenciaga died in 1972, but his legacy and firmly established design codes live on in the house as we know and love it today. Under the ownership of the Gucci group and with Demna Gvasalia at the helm, Balenciaga continues to be one of the most iconic and influential fashion houses in the world.
