The master of dramatic shape and sculptural silhouettes, Cristobal Balenciaga, founded his couture house in 1918. The Balenciaga label was reintroduced to the fashion world in the nineties, with the appointment of Nicolas Ghesquière, as a futuristic avant-garde fashion house. Since taking reign in 1997, Ghesquière has turned up the dial on volume and shape to the maximum. Today, Balenciaga is Sci-Fi obsessed, techno-fabric crazed and sculpturally conceptual. Ghesquière has revitalized Balenciaga and transformed the house into a multimillion dollar couture factory that churns out highly covetable items consistently, season after season. Hot items include the much sought after harness platform boots, gladiator sandals, lego-inspired heels, shearling jacket and the signature Balenciaga City bag. For men, it’s the egg shell coat, collarless blazers and military jackets.
