Tailoring undergoes a captivating process of deconstruction and reconstruction, as traditional pants are artfully transformed into innovative pieces. The hems feature inverted waists or are reimagined as cuffs, adopting an innovative hybrid style experimentation. In addition, the trousers are cleverly doubled, with legs draped over legs, to create an entrancing sense of fluid motion and movement. These inventive ideas extend beyond pants to include classic separates in denim, leather, and cotton outerwear, demonstrating a brilliant fusion of elements.
Inflatable forms are incorporated skillfully into the linings of garments such as zip-up hoodies, biker jackets, tracksuits, and puffer jackets. This innovative addition modifies the body’s dimensions playfully, drawing inspiration from extreme sports. The draping and gathering of silk georgette garments explores dramatic asymmetry, presenting captivating new volumes that defy conventional standards.
Floral print plissé dresses crafted from leather and lightweight textiles, as well as animal print leather trenches and small-fit sweatsuits in jersey or velour, are reconfigured in inventive ways to emphasize the shoulders, resulting in striking, pronounced, and rounded silhouettes.
This distinctive silhouette is influenced by Balenciaga Couture and effortlessly transitions into eveningwear. The Balenciaga Winter 2023 collection features floor-length gowns adorned with intricate sequins, crystal embellishments, layers of beaded fringe, sparkling yarns, lace embroidery, and hand-embellished single droplets of silicon, or cast in velvet, and elegantly tied with satin bows at the waist. In addition, the collection features the plush leather Huge Bag and an updated version of the Crush Bag.
The Biker Boot takes inspiration from motocross designs and features radical sport details and monochromatic elements. The Anatomic Boot, crafted from tube knit or spandex, follows the curves and contours of the foot to provide both style and comfort.
