Logo-mania Revival: The trend reappeared stronger

The pantaboots—fused leggings and stilettos— has been a surprise runaway seller

Gvasalia built on some of the foundations he’s laid down since placing an outsize Balenciaga logo on a stole in the first collection for Pre-Fall 2016.

An excellent attempt at re-chic-ing the mundane.

At times like this, when we’d all cry unless we laughed, Balenciaga’s absurd accessories are perfectly timed.

On a deeper level, there’s a slyly intelligent debate about fake-versus-real. The airport shop souvenir–inspired New York, London, Tokyo, and Hong Kong bags can be bought as, well, souvenirs only in those cities.

His silhouettes, even the slope-shouldered stance and the “real” look of the models, are much imitated high and low throughout fashion. The copier, copied. It’s one of the funniest things about fashion today.
