Balenciaga Launches New Objects Line
The first release includes a limited-edition sculpture of the Track.2 sneaker.
Expanding its offerings in fashion, Balenciaga is launching a new Objects category featuring individual drops throughout the year with special, timeless pieces ranging from “collectible treasures to items for everyday use, at home or on the move.”
The label’s first launch in the Objects line features a metal sculpture of Balenciaga’s Track.2 sneaker in a size 41. Weighing 2.5 kilograms, the metal sculpture is a nod to the original shoe’s particular place in culture and its popularity, and is made in Italy with 16 cast brass pieces that are soldered and sealed, and then coated with palladium.
The first Balenciaga Object will be limited-edition, with only 20 Track.2 sculptures available worldwide. Take a look at the sculpture in the gallery above, and stay tuned as Balenciaga will continue releasing unique items as part of the new line.
