We didn't have to wait a week after all!!!
Hurray for Alexander! We bet he’s fielding about a thousand congratulatory calls and popping a bottle of champagne right about now. Ha!
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.
