Ever since we heard the news that Alexander Wang was chosen as the head designer for Balenciaga, we’ve been excited to see what he would come up with. Both being avid fans of Nicolas Ghesquière and his signature motorcycle inspired bags, we wondered if Wang could keep Balenciaga in a place of fashion cult-like stardom. The collection shown on the runway was very reflective of Wang’s style and his own signature line. With a black, white, and grey color palette, clean and simple silhouettes, and strategically placed cutouts, the new Balenciaga takes a more minimalistic approach that speaks volumes to a younger crowd. What we especially loved were the structured satchel bags and the out of the box footwear that enhanced the overall look of the ready to wear collection. Only time will tell if Alexander Wang is a good fit for Balenciaga but based on his first attempt, we think it will be a success!
