Huge bags, tulle tutu skirts, oversized jackets, baseball caps, tie-dye and diamond prints, sneakers paired with a wedding dress dominated the catwalk.
Balenciaga presented its fall-winter 2022-2023 collection amidst a snow storm at the Parc des Expositions du Bourget. Originally conceived as a commentary on the climate catastrophe, the show was a message to Ukraine from a Georgian designer who had to flee his native Abkhazia as a child.
The brand introduces innovations, such as a long coat made of synthetic leather from mushroom mycelium (EPHEATM), which is used here instead of real leather. In addition to models, there were special guests at the show – Kim Kardashian, Alexa Demi, ASAP Ferg, Roddy Rich, Salma Hayek, who came to the show in their best outfits from the brand.
