Alexander Wang Gets Balenciaga Gig!

We didn't have to wait a week after all!!!

Just one day after we reported that Alexander Wang might replace Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga, the rumors have been confirmed!

Hurray for Alexander! We bet he’s fielding about a thousand congratulatory calls and popping a bottle of champagne right about now. Ha!

PPR will make the official announcement next week, but the position is pretty much in the bag for the 28-year-old designer.

By choosing Wang to usher in this new era, the peeps at Balenciaga may be looking to appeal to a younger clientele as Wang is known for his sportswear, and his designs are trendier & less avant-garde than Ghesquière’s creations.

We can’t wait to see what direction Wang takes, though he now has the added challenge of balancing this new gig with his own eponymous label.

He’s going to be very busy for the next several years.

Congrats!
