At the more experimental side of high fashion sits Balenciaga. Known for outlandish pieces with price tags to match — such as its $8,000 eight-layer parka and $2,000+ shopping bag — in amongst the high fashion madness are the makings of some unquestionably fire ’fits.
Founded by Cristóbal Balenciaga some 100 years ago. the French fashion house’s avant-garde designs under creative director Demna Gvsalia have most notably filtered into streetwear via its polarizing Triple-S sneaker – the leader of the ugly/chunky sneaker trend that boasts three massive sole units in a number of outlandish colorways.
You’ll find the sneakers in each of our carefully curated fall ’fits below, which should provide all the inspiration you need for how to rock them as Demna intended.
Making use of all the fashion house’s statement oversized shapes for FW18, these fits have each been sourced from London-based retailer Browns — who have a vast selection of the best new Balenciaga pieces. They may come with a designer-sized hole in your wallet, but that’s the price you gotta pay to guarantee your place in those Fashion Week street style lookbooks…
This low-key Balenciaga ’fit will be the envy of those most in-the-know. The track jacket is the perfect sportswear-meets-high fashion piece, tapping into a grittier, outdoor aesthetic when paired with retro, washed out jeans and the subtle flex of Balenciaga’s explorer pouch.
Layer Balenciaga’s retro Speed Hunters hoodie under this grail of winter coats — a logo-embroidered, oversized parka. The wow-factor of this all-black outfit comes from the kicks, however, which give a dope color pop to add to an already striking silhouette. They’re one of our favorite Triple-S colorways to date.
The hero piece of this fit is Balenciaga’s reflective pants, which look amazing when worn with the tonal grey Triple-S colorway. Complete the look with full on Balenciaga flex — an oversized coat with large logo detailing on its back.
