Where the runway meets the street

Joining fellow Kering-owned brand Gucci, Balenciaga has today announced the unification of its men’s and women’s collections, meaning the fashion house will show both drops on one runway going forward. The transition will take effect for the FW18 season, to be presented at Paris Fashion Week in March.

In addition, Balenciaga will introduce men’s pre-collections beginning in January 2018.

While we mentioned Gucci, who is also under the Kering umbrella, other reputable labels have been showing their men’s and women’s ranges in unison in recent months and years, including Kenzo, Burberry and Calvin Klein.

In related news, Balenciaga just added laces to its ever-popular Speed Trainer.
