Demna Gvasalia just made Spandex cool

By  | 

Balenciaga Spring 2017

Demana Gvasalia’s mission at Balenciaga is making strong silhouettes the defining feature of his work. For Spring Summer 2017 it was all about the the relationship between the body and the fabric covering it -in this particular case: latex and Spandex- and the obsession involved around fit, likening it to a fetishistic experience. As for the coats and jackets, the shoulders were boxy and pointy but there was a softening in the proportions. The blouses and dresses done in thrift shop florals were somehow elegant and luxurious, especially when topped with jewelled diamond brooches. The sexy pants were lean and high, almost as suffocating as the guilty desirable legging-boots Kim Kardashian is already obsessed about.
