Balenciaga has come through with its latest franken-fashion offering, just in time for summer.

First, they gave us “pantashoes” during the brand's Spring 2017 ready-to-wear; a theme that would evolve into a full-blown high-neck pantashoe-catsuit by SS2o. Since then, Balenciaga has continued to use hybridity to reference and remix cultural references.

But with no more subcultures to be discovered Demna Gvasalia has returned to the ever-inspiring dadcore aesthetic. Their latest offering riffs on two permanent fixtures in any suburban dad's permanent rotation: blue jeans and cargo shorts.

The beige and blue cargo-short jeans are a composite of military and vintage workwear influences, formed of two different styles joined for a deconstructed, layered effect. They’re made from cotton twill and denim, with flap pockets and side adjusters to personalize the oversized wide-leg fit.

On the heels of Balenciaga's Gucci collaboration/hack, and ahead of the brand's return to couture this July, this jean-shorts mashup seems like a throwback to Gvasalia's anti-fashion roots (albeit with a $1,250 price tag).
