Luxury house BALENCIAGA presented their Fall 2021 collection with Afterworld: The Age of Tomorrow video game. Designer Demna Gvasalia explores vision of near future in witch clothing is meant to transform over many years. The game’s hero’s journey is set in the year 2031, brand’s store exit leads a hero into a busy street and further on to a dark forest in which a secret rave is going on. A surprise awaits at a mountain’s top, for players who complete some challenges. Throughout the game, all avatars are wearing looks from Balenciaga‘s Fall 2021 collection.
“Suits and coats are made to be worn anywhere. Tailored suits made in T shirt jersey are stonewashed and pre stretched to look worn and are extra comfortable. Other pre crinkled tailored suits don’t ever need an iron. Super destroyed suits show a loving amount of wear already. Performance tailoring is made from meshlined stretch materials suitable for hiking, cycling, or anything.
In the future, a garment that appears to serve one function may serve another, seeing as certain materials will be re interpreted for new uses. A satin trench is not a coat but a party dress. Jeans layered over pants and sweats showing a boxer short waistband are actually each a single item. As animal fur is no longer appropriate for people to buy new, a puffer is embroidered with recycled fabric that was laser cut to mimic the movement of a fur jacket.” – from Balenciaga
