Someone at Balenciaga should be fired. And no, not just Demna, the new creative director, but whomever the idiot is who keeps hiring the wrong designer.
It just isn’t fair. They keep selecting great designers WHO DON’T DESERVE THIS BRAND! This isn’t a slight. This isn’t about talent. It’s about the fit. And Demna doesn’t fit Balenciaga.
First of all, last season was an atrocity. And for this season he totally switched direction, and clearly he has decided to lean on what he knows. As a result this wasn’t about Balenciaga this was a Vetements show under the header of Balenciaga.
And OMG. What was up with the Condom coat at Balenciaga?
Which must be meant for the Penis track suit at Vetements
I mean, come on! These “life preserver” hoodies, and the slanted skirts over hip-high boots were re-runs from Vetements!
It’s as if they were edited Vetements pieces from his show and he was like, “hey, lets stick that in Balenciaga”.
This is bullshit. And I don’t feel sorry for him. There was no way that he didn’t realize this was too close a design. No one wants to associate Vetements with Balenciaga- and hey, dude – you’ve got balls trying to compare what you make at Vetements to the legacy of the Balenciaga brand – a heritage brand that literally shaped the mold of modern fashion. Come on!!
Then it got worse. Yep, demna created a whole new house of horrors
Good luck getting through airport security in those coats.
But it didn’t stop. Granny sofa’s around the world have been stripped of their fabric
To be fair, there was one ray of sunshine. This look is spectacular and if he is smart he will build on this look. But that seems like a shit shot in the dark.
