Demna Gvasalia is renowned for his subversive and experimental takes on classic styling, and the fashion house’s SS22 collection epitomises that.
Since Demna Gvasalia was appointed as Balenciaga's Creative Director in 2015, the fashion house has served as a reflection of the designer’s eclectic taste. Each collection is fuelled by Gvasalia’s subversive desire to blur the lines — things like luxury and streetwear are combined seamlessly, while tailoring is transformed from a rebellious and contemporary angle.
That approach — one that defies convention in pursuit of experimentation — is one that’s brought over to the fashion house’s SS22 collection. Outerwear is cut to dramatic, oversized shapes, while retro-inspired sportswear is elevated using bold colours and luxurious branding. An experimental approach is taken to the denim, too — jeans are cut to super-relaxed fits, fitted with a bevy of pockets and detailed with silver-toned hardware throughout.
