Fashion house BALENCIAGA unveiled its Fall 2023 Collection that brings reimagined signature pieces, innovative accessories, and studies in the realms of tailoring and sustainability. Designer Demna reinvented the brand’s puffer, biker, skater, and varsity jackets with volume and materiality. Parkas are transformed into wraps and gilets; peacoats and trenches are cropped and folded under; and suit jackets or shirts are extended and doubled over or padded, resulting in a variety of reconstructed silhouettes. Sweaters feature integrated gloves or are made without seams. Tracksuits, trousers, hoodies, and T-shirts come in characteristic proportions and elevated fabrics. Jeans pieces are tailored with organic Japanese, indigo ring Italian or soft lefthand twill denim. Much of the collection was made with recycled elements or with bio-based materials.
“The BB Soft Bag takes suppleness to another level, folding over itself. An Hourglass Bag is reconstituted in rigid metal or completely covered in fake fur. The Beach Bag is inspired by the practice of inverting a straw hat to make a basket. Le Cagole returns as a small duffle and a belt bag. The 4×4 Bag is a pliable cube, which zips open around its midsection. The Mary-Kate Bag is a convex tote in embossed and lined leather. The Crush Bag, Anatomic Shoe, and Home Slide are seen in new textures and sizes. The Defender returns as an allover tread clog. The Witch Boot has an exaggerated and slightly curling pointedness. The Santiago Boot adds unexpected curvature to a western style. Pumps are covered in monochromatic flower petals. The Knife Pantashoe is flesh-toned and covered with a fishnet stocking.” – from Balenciaga
