As one of his design methods is the repurposing of things, Demna Gvasalia, creative director of Balenciaga has just bought himself a car. So you could find wing mirror clutch bags, key-laden chain necklaces, and diamante belt-buckle earrings flashed by from the latest Fall 2017 collection.
Also, last season’s spandex stocking-boots, brilliantly colored, continued apace. There were flower-print and polka-dot versions, and then—surprise—a preview of possibly the world’s first protest shoes, draped in look-alike Bernie Sanders Balenciaga T-shirt material.
