In Demna Gvasalia's world, high-fashion isn't merely about the fantasy, but the reality that surrounds creating wearable forms of art. This season at Balenciaga, Gvasalia took the reigns in a gothic direction by infusing his own sense of style and aesthetic--focusing on creating a collection that was less about the legacy of Cristobal and more about Gvasalia's stance on fashion. For Spring 2018, Gvasalia pushed the limits as models flanked the runway clad in men's striped shirts, punk tartans, t-shirts, negligees and a round-up of gilded chunky earrings and chain bags.
