The fashion house Balenciaga has a long history of innovation and audacity in the fashion world, and the latest Spring/Summer 2024 collection tells the story of a complete range of clothing, from daywear to eveningwear. Featuring long and extremely versatile A-line skirts, dresses that can be transformed, and jackets with wide necklines that show extraordinary attention to detail. Set in a theater draped in red velvet, it created a dramatic and engaging atmosphere from the start. This setting made the presentation even more visually and sensorially unique.
What emerges from Demna Gvasalia‘s new collection is a deep connection with a series of distinctive tailoring techniques. The precision of tailoring work is evident in every piece. Furthermore, a distinctive element of this runway show was the sound curated by BFRND, exploring the concept of sonic haute couture. This soundtrack featured 3 different auditory elements – orchestra, piano, and electronics – along with the narrating voice of Isabelle Huppert reciting instructions on how to make a tailored jacket from the manual “La Veste Tailleur Homme.”
