Men in Balenciaga, their style sets them apart.
Balenciaga sounds Spanish, and that is indeed where the founder of the label hailed from initially, but the haute couture brand is actually French. Cristobal Balenciaga got acquainted with the fashion business by working as a buyer for major brands like Chanel, Schiaparelli and Madeleine Vionnet. After studying their designs from every which way, he would soon decide to create edgy collections of his own and opened a boutique in San Sebastian in Spain and then another in Paris, the fashion capital. The designer describes himself as a “textile architect”, which perfectly sums up the concept that he is in a different designing league to all his rivals. The House of Balenciaga makes designs for contemporary men, as well as women.
Balenciaga jackets: resolutely chic and modern menswear.
A man who wears Balenciaga wants to stand out from the crowd in a quirky and unconventional style. To be consistent with the brand's distinct identity, the jackets and blousons for men are pared right down to basics. The main idea behind this brand is to favour more straightforward cuts. To do that, the designs are stitched to perfection to ensure that the purely technical aspects take centre stage. The jackets are made of wool, leather or denim. The tones used are also factors which can vary depending on tastes and customer preferences. Whatever the fabric happens to be, the result is style in abundance. The House endlessly reinvents itself by revisiting classics like the iconic leather blouson jackets and lightweight denim jackets. The idea is to stamp a distinct mark on each design with finishes characteristic of the brand, the presence of the logo or the use of an unusual cut. Clothes designed by Balenciaga always lie somewhere between inspirations past and present.
