Balenciaga, founded in 1917 by Cristobal Balenciaga and now one of the world's leading fashion houses, is led by artistic director Demna Gvasalia.
Balenciaga represents innovative style designed for future leaders, and is distinguished by its original materials and authentic design inspired by extreme sports realities. The collection of luxury eyewear by Balenciaga is divided into two lines: Extreme and Everyday.
The first depicts Gvasalia's aesthetic for the French maison: androgynous, linear and sophisticated. “The delicate metal frames, the enveloping bold acetate designs and the iconic tortoiseshell motif, seem to almost hover in the air, while the new techniques applied to the timeless models guarantee the maximum functionality”.
The second is a collection of sports-inspired lenses that experiments with illusions of continuity, adopting innovative frames, mirrored materials as well as an original combination of techniques thanks to an extravagant elegance and a dynamic modernity.
Demna's Spring Summer 2023 show "The Mud Show" presented by Kanye West, explored his vision of the fashion world and his declaration that fashion is individuality and not conformity.
The collection features a mix of workwear looks, terry cloth jumpsuits, parkas, windbreakers, destroyed effect jeans, dropped pocket pants, wool scarves, shopper bags, sack bags, and long wrap around dresses in colored knitwear. The Balenciaga resell program represents the brand's new ethos. The show was a reassuring and desirable presentation in classic Balenciaga style that blends street references with high fashion.
