Now in the FOURTH season of the considered directorship of Alexander Wang, Balenciaga's Spring Summer 2015 continues the referential exploration of the design house’s legacy, executed in combination with a minimalist vision that has come to define the modern era of THE FAMOUS MAISON.
Centred around a wild collision of prints and signature clean tailoring instilled with Alexander Wang’s unmistakable minimalist touch, SS15 captures everything the Parisian powerhouse typifies; refined tailoring, quiet elegance, innovation and understated sophistication.
A triumph of construction, Spring Summer 15 at Balenciaga executes its powerful ethos through the details and masterful tailoring that underpin garments, an appropriately subtle celebration defined by lavish technical process. This celebration is offset by the vivid yet calculated splashes of colour found on this collection’s evergreens atypical of Alexander Wang’s arsenal of innovation but executed seamlessly against the sleek modernity which rules over the collection.
The Balenciaga sneaker, a hallmark of the modern era, remains a definitive compliment to Ready-to-Wear pieces. Grounded in this season’s print-heavy aesthetic, the Marble Low top sneaker embodies the wearable opulence of Spring Summer 15 and compliments the stark monochrome colourways of the high and low tops that remain a seasonal cult classic.
