Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2019


“Elegance, glamour, all the words that seem, kind of, taboo today.” That’s Balenciaga’s theme for spring/summer 2019. The glamour imagined by Demna Gvasalia is high-tech. As if transported to the inside of a computer, the runway had looks with sharp shoulders and classic tailoring in neutral colors, all perfect for formal workwear. Knee-length dresses in metallic and even fringes were the modern elegance Gvasalia was telling us about. But if the square silhouette seemed a little rigid, colorful tights and shoes brought a little fun to the collection. The semi-sweetheart lime green blouse with a beautiful, revealing back and trousers with a v-waist are ready to be incorporated into your spring/summer. The jewel mini dress in black was also one of the outfits that Gvasalia perfectly encapsulates ready-to-wear. Vibrant colors and high heels and a chic jumpsuit with neon earrings were also a good balance of what Balenciaga showed: high-tech glamour and classic elegance. The collection inspires us to mix workwear and confidence.
