For Pre-Fall 2023, It’s Back to Basics at Balenciaga

And by basics we mean fitting room selfies...

Before we jump into the newness we’re here to cover, it is important to note that we have not covered Balenciaga since the major issues that surfaced months ago. Since that time, new leadership has taken over to ensure something like this doesn’t happen again. Though the issues were appalling, the brand has taken actionable steps. Additionally, we know that thousands of other people work for this brand who had no part in what happened. With that being said, let’s jump into what’s new.

Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2023

Balenciaga is giving us a look at its Pre-Fall 2023 collection in a series of fitting room selfies because, after all, models, they’re just like us! The collection is what’s to be expected from Balenciaga, striped down and showcased in a relaxed setting. Models don lots of dark hues, oversized statement pieces, leather, baggy denim, and of course, massive sunglasses. There were a variety of bags showcased in the selfies, too, from new iterations of the Hourglass and the Le Cagole to new large, oversized silhouettes.

The Hourglass, Revived

The Hourglass appears in cool new metal iterations, which play off of the bag’s structured, angular shape. Meanwhile, models wore the brand’s latest bag, the BB Soft Bag, in a few different variations. The BB Soft plays off of the pillow bag trend but is less padded than what we’ve seen from other Houses. As a whole, bags are spacious and relaxed, and very Balenciaga. For a further look at the collection with the option to pre-order many of the bags shown below, visit Balenciaga.com.

Still pedophiles, still cancelled. Get these terrible garbage people off the stage, people have been cancelled for less.

Don’t forget, they have documents, photos, and the designers and his friends have justified their actions. Stop supporting pedophilia and anything that promulgates it, including Balenciaga.

Hello, Troll!
There is literally nothing about pedophilia… Just because Balenciaga has made tasteless ad campaigns, doesn’t mean anyone is a pedophile. It’s easy and cowardly to throw these big accusations under the cover of internet anonymity.

Not defending Balenciaga, I haven’t cared for their direction for some time now, but what I interpreted from that controversial campaign is that people do things that are questionable, bad and wrong for power and money. That’s the dark and sad reality we’ve been living in for a long time now right? And unless something catastrophic happens and the world ends today or tomorrow, nothing’s really going to change, not in this lifetime. Even with this campaign, with the fitting room selfies, it’s like looking in the mirror, we’re slaves to fashion, to capitalism, sadly to the world we created. Buy the bag, buy the shoes, take that selfie, anything for that dopamine hit. Sorry for the bleak outlook.

Vote here to downvote this deaf tone comment. Whether or not AI has been used to cover up their messes, justifying its comeback from a pedophilic scandal followed by finger pointing while no action was taken is wrong.

@megs you don’t have to be a mom to know that helping bring back balenciaga by posting paid content is wrong. Let balenciaga die in its shallow grave (buried in the paraphernalia they shot).

I think that even if it’s PRE fall, the collection is a bit dark and gloomy

I like the long, black body-con dress, but I’m a color person. If it were in a color other than black or white, I’d be on board. Everything else is too pouty and oversized for my liking.

Is it just me or is hosiery 2b worn OVER shoes next Fall?
Is it just me or is the Matrix’s Keanu Reeves missing from this shoot?
Naw, must just be me.
