Nicolas Ghesquière Out and Alexander Wang In for Balenciaga
According to WWD, Alexander Wang will take the role of Creative Director of Balenciaga next week. Nicolas Ghesquière’s 15 year reign has ended and the fashion house is moving into a younger and edgier direction.
Wang, who is dubbed the cool New York designer, launched his first women’s ready-to-wear collection in 2007 that was filled with dark aesthetics, slouchy looks, and limited amounts of feminine colors. However, Balenciaga’s house, which launched in 1937, is known for fitted forms and the impulsive use of color.
The new collaboration will be an interesting one. One can only expect Balenciaga to bring forth cutting edge couture fashions for every generation. I guess rappers A$AP Rocky and Azealia Banks will fall in love with the upcoming Balenciaga designs since their favorite designer will be creatively spear-heading the house.
