To be completely frank there was an other reason to share Vetement‘s latest collection. Maybe this will be a new information for somebody (or not). Anyway there it is: Balenciaga’s and Vetement’s creative director is the same person, namely Demna Gvasalia. Yes, after Alexander Wang’s leaving the Georgian designer took place at the famous European designer house.
If you remember the Vetement collection you can see the resemblance clearly but somehow it’s still more classic and chic. What I love here most is the styling of coats and jackets off the shoulder. I bet we’ll see some street style star in a near future wearing their jackets exactly like this. I like the sporty casual meets classic chic style, the simple neutral colors mixed with a pop of color here and there.
Also the big colorful shopper caught my eyes as they kinda remind me of my father’s closely worthless shopping bag. Ok, that wasn’t leather obviously but had (perhaps has?) exact same colors and same style. It’s a coincidence? Hardly, I guess. 🙂
It seems Mr. Gvasalia was a good choice as he could bring the new (bit strange) perspective to the old fashion house’s heritage what was missing there for a while.
Do you like the new Balenciaga too?
