Balenciaga's Fall/Winter 2018 Show Was a Lesson in Layering

Demna’s Ethics x Aesthetics.

Demna Gvasalia is known for his exaggerated silhouettes and unique design approach – and his Fall/Winter 2018 show for Balenciaga was no exception. Showcasing a collection filled with futuristic outerwear, mixing and matching as well as graphic prints, models paraded down the runway in pieces that reached peak Balenciaga. With an emphasis on layering, models were clad in multiple bulky ski-inspired jackets and coats in a range of colors, keeping the silhouette exaggerated and large at top, and slim at the bottom with sock-like heels.

Not only did the label focus on the elevated silhouettes, Gvasalia also brought out tailored dresses and coats with focus on marking the waist with accessories made from keys and key-rings. The Georgian designer also included a range of World Food Program-branded pieces that will all be sold to benefit the EU charity, in addition to donating $250,000 USD to the fund. “You see, I don’t want to be just a T-shirt-and-hoodie man. We sell them, of course — but I feel I have a responsibility to do it in a way which brings a message,” said Gvasalia on his attempt to bridge the gap between ethics and aesthetics.
