Balenciaga’s designer Demna Gvasalia idea this year set the fashion show inside a futuristic tunnel and she had fragments of speech and computer-generated imagery around the walls of the tunnel. According to the designer it was done to make the audience focus on the present moment. I always love a spectacle during a show, I believe it is important to keep fashion entertaining.
Interestingly Gvasalia came to reinvent the what we call “suit” the new and reinvented suits would use“neo-tailoring”—fluid shirt-jackets with matching trousers, for men and women alike. Moreover, he mentions that this fits better into today’s modern world as it does not require to wear a shirt and a tie. Count me in! I love this idea, and I love how exquisitely tailored and elegant this looked.
Gvasalia’s innovative spirit can be seen in everything he does from how to cut and drape a dress out of one piece of fabric to the reinvention of suits. His core value of creating beautiful elegant shapes with minimal effort can be seen in everything he does. Exquisite!
