Inside an LED tunnel that showed various video installations, Balenciaga presented its SS19 collection. The videos showed flames and TV static amongst others, which light up the collection in a beautiful way. The entire collection itself was powerful and striking, making the presentation as a whole well thought out.
Balenciaga took the business wardrobe and put it on steroids. Broad shoulders, electric colors, stiff collars, etc., it gave off a modern 80s vibe. The luxe fabrics were draped to perfection in a stiff and powerful way. One of the many style tips I learned from this collection was taken from the structured tops paired with flowing trousers. I think it adds elegance and a touch of casualty to the work place uniform. Besides the installation and collection, I think the age range of the models was one of the most interesting parts of the show. I would be interested to see if more brands decide to take this step, especially to showcase that these looks can be worn by any generation. My love for Balenciaga has been a consistent one and something that is definitely not faltering this year. I enjoy when brands step outside the box with presentations, makes the fashion month season so exciting and fresh.
