Balenciaga’s crazy bangs

Balenciaga’s crazy bangs

For his 2022 cruise collection, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga’s artistic director since December 2022, pays homage

to Cristobal Balenciaga’s inventive graphic design and conceptual wardrobe. Like these shiny kid sandals on

which vinyl bangs crinkle and blend in relief.

The crazy bangs of Balenciaga

During the Fashion Week fall-winter 2022-2022, for his first collection as artistic director of Balenciaga, Alexander

Wang explored the universe and codes of the fashion house, created in 1919 in San Sebastian. A new reading of the

house’s archives and Cristobal Balenciaga’s style that the designer is also pursuing for the 2022 cruise collection.

Some of Balenciaga’s volumes, techniques and couture constructions are reinterpreted, merging with the sportswear

spirit and androgynous inspirations of Alexander Wang. On the accessories side, the materials and lines evoke Cristobal

Balenciaga’s artisanal spirit and inventive graphics. Like these extravagant sandals in shiny kid leather adorned with jewel straps and fringed on the front of the foot. Crazy bangs in crumpled vinyl, the star ornament

of this 2022 cruise collection, which can also be seen on embroidered hats and bags.

Sandals in shiny kid leather and brass chain, Balenciaga, 995 euros.
