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.
