The Decision

To be honest, I didn't see that coming, and I don't think he would be my first choice for the house.  

While I am a massive fan of Wang-like the rest of the world-I just can't picture him at the helm of a house like Balenciaga.  And he (or anyone for that matter) is going to have a tough time following Nicolas Ghesquière, the beloved designer of Balenciaga for the past 15 years.  The departure of Ghesquière from the fashion house occured today; the end of an era.  In my opinion, while both brands emulate a similar feeling of cool, Balenciaga seems a little couture-ish for Wang, the king of streetwear.

In any case I love Wang and his brand and I can't wait to see what he can accomplish at Balenciaga.  He might aid in making the brand a little more relatable, which I think it can use.  I hope he can maintain all of his current amazingness!  

I'm not sure how I feel about the decision at this point.  Will Wang be able to handle both his namesake lable and a brand as major and influential as Balenciaga? I guess we will have to wait and see. What do you think of the decision?

  3. Even though I adore Balenciaga, my true love is Alexander Wang! I hope he remains true to his own label and can juggle both without compromise!!!
