Deciphering Vetements’ Balenciaga

1. Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2017 & Maison Martin Margiela Spring/Summer 2011
2. Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2017 & Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2009
3. Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2017 & Vetements Fall/Winter 2016

It is a trial-ogue between Mertin, Raf and the self that is Demna. My favourite collection of all times (Spring/Summer 2009) finds itself re-appropriated, re-conceptualized and re-made. Blended with what is out there, and what Raf himself took on - that is oversized workwear shirts. Isn’t it a pity that fashion looks all the same? Long sleeves, dropped shoulders, drab fabrics. Isn’t it a pity that genius copies each other? Is that truly genius?
