  • One of the most revolutionising forces in fashion, couturier Cristóbal Balenciaga defined many of the greatest developments in fashion history. Founded in 1919, Cristóbal Balenciaga transformed the way women dressed entirely, and with his unyielding focus on the silhouette Balenciaga created not only a style, but technique. He was the architect of Haute couture. An unflinching perfectionism, his dedication to innovation, technique and construction, made Balenciaga the most coveted clothier in the world. In his fifteen years as creative director at Balenciaga, Nicolas Ghesquière reinvigorated the brand with his unique directional vision for the house. A "designers, designer" Nicolas Ghesquière completely revolutionised a generation of women's wardrobes with his groundbreaking futuristic designs, and rigorous attention to detail, that blended a reverence for Cristóbal Balenciaga through the archives, and his own radically modernistic sensibilities, cementing Balenciaga at the forefront of fashion. With his recent appointment as Creative Director, Demna Gvasalia has brought a newfound sense of excitement, interest and energy to the brand, that had been missing in recent years since the departure of Nicolas Ghesquière. Since his first runway collection for Fall 2016, Demna Gvasalia has modernised the spirit of his predecessors with a creative ingenuity and originality that sees the iconic house return to its roots as an radical fashion trailblazer. Synthesising the past with a direct turn toward the future, Gvasalia channels his distinct aesthetic through the house codes to create a new, modern couture attitude. Through a mix of daring, creativity and sheer matter-of-fact audacity his collections have provoked a radical sea change at the very heart of fashion, his sense of the zeitgeist and an inexplicable ability to make even the seemingly most uncool apparel seem cool and desirable, has not only changed the way people dress, but shifted the taste level. Where he has brought a new mood of realism to menswear through haute hoodies, an easy, fresh take on tailoring, and upscale sneakers that toe the line between daggy dad and dernier cri, his womenswear offering is just as exciting and refreshing to come by, with directional silhouettes and proportions, experimental accessories, and innovative updates on the classics, these are genuinely new propositions for the wardrobe, the kind of lust-worthy clothes that answer the question both Cristóbal Balenciaga and Nicolas Ghesquière knew the answer to: what do women want to wear
