I found out this morning on Fashionista probably the most exiting news I have read in a while. It was announced today that Alexander Wang could possibly be Nicholas Ghesquières’s successor as designer for the french couture label , Balenciaga. Although this is not completely confirmed , I think that this would be such a great move. As long as his own label still exists. Balenciaga really needs to re-gain it’s past relevance and bringing the king of cool Wang in would really give them the push they need. While Alexander Wang and Balenciaga have a very different aesthetic , Balenciaga being structured and very french and Wang being so New-York-Girl cool , slouchy and atheletic , I think a mix of his effortless silhouette’s and Balenciaga’s parisian flair would be a perfect match. I am , as many people are , very intrigued by how this will develop and exactly what Wang will do.
