For Balenciaga’s SS18 collection, Demna Gvasalia pulled inspiration from the carefree style of European dads who take their kids to play in the park on Sunday mornings and made it stylish AF, as he’s known to do. Now, after announcing the merge of the brand’s menswear and womenswear, Balenciaga’s FW18 line is inspired by the snowboarders of the early ’90s, with different garments and fabrics sewn together to create a single piece of clothing.
Of course, the internet had plenty of hilarious reactions following the collection’s debut back in March, from “this will haunt me till the day I die” to simply “Why?” But with Fall/Winter pieces now front of mind, we’ve selected our favorite outlandish items from the latest collection, which toe the fine line between bad taste and high fashion. In other words, peak Balenciaga.
Love it or hate it, below you’ll find the likes of a denim shirt with long striped sleeves and an attached “Balenciaga” ID holder, a double-breasted coat that takes oversized to the next level for the most dad-core look imaginable, and a long-sleeve with a non-detachable T-shirt on the front — perfect for the more indecisive shoppers. Needless to say, if you take a liking to the wacky styles, be ready to part with a few hundred bucks at the very minimum.
Whether you’re planning to cop, or just looking for a laugh, peep our picks below.
