Luxury fashion house Balenciaga has unveiled its Fall 2016 menswear collection, inspired by the utilitarian nature of gardening clothes. Silhouettes are experimental, and could easily be mistaken for Demna Gvasalia's own designs, but they actually belong to the house's design team, started before Demna's appointment as Balenciaga's new creative director.

Drawing inspiration from the bespoke attire house founder Cristóbal Balenciaga created for Mona von Bismarck, the collection has roots firmly planted in the past. Modern cuts are presented, ranging from traditional menswear staples to aprons fashioned in leather, however the underlying resolve of original garments hasn't changed.

Throughout, the proportions vary widely. Coats are elongated and graze the floor, trousers are cut wide and sewn with high-placed yokes, and shearling-lined bomber jackets are waisted high.

For more, be on the lookout for Balenciaga's first-ever menswear show, helmed by Gvasalia, during Paris Menswear Week.
