French fashion house Balenciaga has announced that it will show its spring/summer 2017 menswear collection on June 22 during Paris Menswear Week. It will be the first menswear show in the house’s 99-year history. The house currently has a menswear line, but up until now, has never held a menswear show.
“The show will debut the masculine vision of Balenciaga’s new artistic director Demna Gvasalia,” the company said in a statement.
Gvasalia was appointed creative director of the house just seven months ago, succeeding Alexander Wang. He unveiled his first women’s ready-to-wear collection for the house this past March in Paris. Notably, Gvasalia is also the founder and designer of Vetements, one of menswear’s hottest luxury streetwear brands of the moment.
