Fashion Friday: Balenciaga SS17 Menswear

For the first time Balenciaga has its very own menswear runway show. I am definitely elated when Demna Gvasalia decided to debut menswear collection on a runway. In his interview with Vogue Runway, Gvasalia has revealed that he drew his Look 1 inspiration from Cristobal Balenciaga’s archive. In fact, it is an unfinished coat that Balenciaga has left behind and I agree that they are no better way to debut this collection but finishing the coat that Balenciaga has unfinished.

This season is all about oversized coats, accessories and garments that you just want to own them already. Gvasalia in many ways has pushed the fashion boundaries such as men wearing heels (again, historically men wear heels) and oversized coats with shorts. I believe this is just the beginning of a new era for Balenciaga.

Here are some of my favourite looks from the SS17 collection:

Look 1
