Balenciaga Is Returning to Couture After a 52-Year Absence (Vogue)
Demna Gvasalia is brining Balenciaga back to the Haute Couture runway! The show, which will take place in July, is the first time the house has couture since 1968, when Cristóbal Balenciaga himself closed the label. This will be Gvasalia’s first foray into the world of couture, and to help him out the house is “establishing a dedicated team” to the collection. The brand is also “replicating” Balenciaga’s original salons at its historic location, 10 Avenue George V.
“Haute couture is the very foundation of this house,” Gvasalia said on Instagram. “So it is my creative and visionary duty to bring couture back. For me, couture is an unexplored mode of creative freedom and a platform for innovation. It not only offers another spectrum of possibilities in dressmaking, it also brings the modern vision of Balenciaga back to its sources of origin.”
