Parisian couture house Balenciaga unveils more images from its FW16 campaign, shot by Mark Borthwick. Demna Gvasalia and Lotta Volkova's luxe-normcore aesthetic was shot by Borthwick on the streets of Paris, with some conveniently-placed mirrors providing a rear view to some of the collection's looks.

Pay special attention to the bags on show — they're basically Demna's luxury interpretation of those nylon shopping bags you find in Chinatowns all over the world, and, if the hype around his Vetements label is anything go by, I imagine you'll be seeing a lot of them in seasons to come.

Gvasalia's tailoring acrobatics are particularly prominent in slide #4 — the model's pea coat looks like it's falling off the shoulder, but it's actually been cut that way. Not exactly the sort of thing you can wear every day, but pretty impressive tailoring nonetheless.
