Power DressingBalenciaga's careers

No matter what one does
as a job.

  “I want to make a ballgown wearable3. That’s exactly my challenge.” – Demna Gvasalia

Balenciaga Summer 20 Collection reimagines dressing for work: power dressing, no matter what one does as a job.
Models of various career tracks interpret and play on beauty standards of today, the past, and the future. New Fashion Uniforms, for example, invent a powerful but convertible shoulder line, while other garments shift a pattern so that seams twist around the body. Super Plissé presses an entire ultra-large garment with pleats. Pillow Parkas are made of lightweight outerwear lined with inflated puffer jackets. Fetish Gowns are made with negligee-like lace, but in voluminous shapes. The iconic Wearable Ballroom dresses reference the couture House’s legacy in contemporary textiles, with removable crinolines, to be worn in any setting.
