With New York Fashion Week over and the rest of fashion month in full swing, I wanted to take a break from the craziness of shows and parties and appointments and take a look at some clothes you can actually, you know, buy now. Because fashion week is fun and all, but honestly I have zero patience to wait around for the next season. So of course I’ve been browsing my usual sites, when I stumbled upon a new drop from perpetually-cool Balenciaga.
Coming off the heels of last season’s World Food Programme partnership, Balenciaga has once again shown their effortlessly cool pieces do more than just get you papped by street style photographers.
For their newest drop, Balenciaga has partnered with Farfetch, arguably the chicest in luxury online retail, to create a capsule of exclusives called (what else) ‘Balenciaga. The exclusive collection’. Ya’ll know I love an exclusive, and this collection is no exception. With pieces featuring illustrations of animals like the Northern White Rhino, the Blue Whale, and the Giant Panda, this capsule has heart. The capsule also stays away from the use of leather, fur, and down materials. The fashion industry’s environmental impact is massive, so anyone drawing some attention to it in a conscious way is vital; it’s also a plus that these pieces are perfect for the streetwear-obsessed.
Below, I’m rounding up some of my favorites from the capsule, and honestly I don’t know which one I need most!
TLDR: This capsule of chic Balenciaga for Farfetch exclusives brings much-needed attention to fashion’s environmental impact while staying cool. So hit that checkout button because these pieces won’t last long.
