Balenciaga Releases 2021 Ready-To-Wear Spring Collection

Disruptive thinker that he is, Demna Gvasalia switched things up again, opting to show Balenciaga’s summer 2021 pre-collection instead of what would have been the main “runway” collection. He also used the video format instead of an immersive physical experience while ramping up his eco efforts, with 93.5 percent of solid-colored fabrics either upcyled or certified sustainable, and 100 percent of the prints certified sustainable.

Design is also a sustainability consideration, and many of the outfits hurtling through the rain-slicked streets of Paris after dark (models maintained their urgent catwalk gait) are unisex and one size, which “will diminish the environmental impact of a gendered production model,” according to the press notes.

The designer also reprised his hefty overcoats, roomy shirts with extra-long sleeves, track jackets, loose dresses and even hoodies, here in a leaner fit and stamped Paris Fashion Week in a generic font.

What's your favorite of the look?
