Is this happening for real??! Mr Alexander Wang is finally confirmed as the new designer of Balenciaga! Time for some refreshment in this brand! For a long period I seriously haven’t seen any changes or new models in their accessories line. One thing is for sure.. Alexander is definitely going to be a fresh breeze. Even though François-Henri Pinault (CEO ppr group) is claiming there is not going to change much of the brand concept, I think Alexander knows better.. I cant wait to see the first collection coming out of his magic hands.. Nicolas Ghesquière who was the previous creative director for Balenciaga, left last month to start his own label. Balenciaga shows they are not desperate: The Balenciaga fashion house and its staff are proud to welcome Alexander Wang, whose proven talent, modernity and individual and cosmopolitan vision of design will naturally embrace and enrich the unique heritage of this fashion house which will soon be one hundred years old,’ Balenciaga CEO Isabelle Guichot.
BYE BYE NICOLAS, HELLO ALEXANDER!
