How Many Ways Can You Wear Your Balenciaga?
When Demna Gvasalia throws you a fashion challenge, you accept it. Head on. The Resort 2017 collection takes bits and bobs from your everyday wardrobe and makes them suddenly cool. Gvasalia is nothing if not cheeky. Here’s how to make the most of Balenciaga’s new line-up.
The Two-Way Shirt
This time, Gvasalia turns his attention to striped shirts, and renders it oversized. Let’s just say you won’t be wearing this to any boardroom. Leave a side untucked for a slouchy-cool look. Wearing it front-to-back? Undo a couple of buttons to make it off-shoulder just so.
The Prissy Top
Typically you’d reach for an accordion pleated top only if the occasion calls for it. Balenciaga strips away all of its stiff formality, in suggesting you team it with a baseball cap, and ignore the sleeves – let your hands slide through the slits instead. Alternatively, you could button up and give into the frills.
Put your own spin on an otherwise prim pussy bow blouse. Wear it front-to-back and ignore the ties.
The Toga Dress
Fear not, this flowy number can be tamed in multiple ways, in fact. While the manual suggests you should let the drape slide down the front, you can just as well play with it. Push it back, to reveal the shoulder, or even wrap it around your neck.
