Alexander Wang Joins Balenciaga

Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang was announced to be the new creative director for Balenciaga yesterday, taking the place of Nicolas Ghesquière. Ghesquière led Balenciaga as creative director for the last 15 years, leading the brand’s expansion and making it a household name again.

While Ghesquière’s designs were always avant-garde, using structure and bright colours in a modern context, Wang is more modern and mass appeal. Black and white can often be seen in his collections, as well as a minimalistic aesthetic, and simple fabrics such as silks and cottons.

With such a stark difference in their aesthetic, I’m looking forward to seeing where Wang will take the brand.

What are you thoughts?
