Balenciaga is one of those fashion houses that usually creates a lot of buzz, whether it be Alexander Wang showcasing his latest collection or the release of the brand’s new advertising campaign. But what went wrong with Balenciaga’s Spring 2015 campaign? Our forums were treated to an exclusive preview of the fashion spots earlier this week and were left disappointed. Moving on from Gisele Bündchen, Wang tapped Sasha Pivovarova for the new mainline campaign, shot by Steven Klein. The concept has been used once before by Klein and we’re frankly a little bored.
Members of our forums aren’t afraid to voice their opinions. “Balenciaga is boring and irrelevant now. I want to see color, all the ads look so dead, and the clothes are so Wang. Now everything looks like Ghesquière’s crumbs. You need to be more than a ‘creative director’ to manage a house like this, you need vision, and that’s something that Alexander Wang doesn’t have. It’s sad,” expressed FelipeV.
“The ugly clothes ruin everything!” added reesewu.
Feeling the same way was ALAUU: “Pretty lackluster in comparison to previous seasons.”
“If this was 5 years ago it would be exciting but at this point who cares about Balenciaga anymore? All I see is a bored looking model and bad clothes and accessories. Next!” proclaimed GivenchyHomme.
“Terrible. Straight hair makes her look like a ghost,” commented coutugh, who wasn’t a fan of the styling.
“Stale. I think my interest in Balenciaga is over,” shared gossiping.
