Kim Kardashian, Dua Lipa, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman become the stars of the Balenciaga fashion show
The Haute Couture week, an haute couture parade that transformed celebrities into the best ambassadors of the firm, has made Paris the center of fashion in recent days. This is a great opportunity that brought together the most recognized faces in the sector, and amazed everyone with one of the most surprising Balenciaga fashion shows to date.
Kim Kardashian, the brand’s muse, melted into a striking black dress, the same color Naomi wore, but with a more voluminous design. Dua Lipa dazzled in a yellow one-shoulder dress, while Nicole triumphed in a mopped, long, metallic design.
In this new Balenciaga collection, a common thread between the technological future and the past was seen, where a tribute was made to the work of the house’s founder. “It starts in the future and then sinks into the past, in the Infanta dresses that later became the origin of the house,” said Balenciaga designer and creative director Demna Gvasalia. In this way, they were able to parade through the impressive Balenciaga salons wearing the latest haute couture collection from the house, becoming the protagonists of the event and fashion week in the Parisian city.
These uncovered faces, some of them world-famous, contrasted with the mannequins whose faces the creative director of the ‘Maison’ (French word) wanted to cover. The black enameled polyurethane helmets made by the Mercedes design team made it impossible to identify those who paraded.
These days, we have also enjoyed the designs of other major brands such as Chanel, Giorgio Armani, or Christian Dior. Although without hesitation, Balenciaga has overseen shaking up the ‘fashion’ universe at fashion week in Paris.
