Balenciaga S.A. is a luxury fashion house founded in Spain by Cristóbal Balenciaga, a designer born in the Basque Country, Spain. The brand is now owned by the French multinational company Kering.
When Demna Gvasalia took over as Balenciaga’s Artistic Director in 2015, he brought along his sense of humor and innovative approach to design – he’s the creative mind behind the vibrantly striped ‘Bazar’ totes and those unforgettable ‘Pantshoes’. Thanks to his melding of archival codes with experimental silhouettes, the Parisian house is the name to know for street style stars and fashion editors alike.
