A while ago I blogged about Alexander Wang copying Tufi and now he’s gonna be the head designer of Balenciaga… Management of PPR must be on some bad drugs.
Nicholas Ghesquiere has been the designer at Balenciaga for 15 years and has sculpted the brand to what it is today. Now Alexander Wang is going to take over. As you might now, I’m not too fond of change, especially head designers at labels that I love.
Why did they choose Alexander Wang as head designer of Balenciaga? Guess they picked Alexander Wang because he’s asian and Asia is where the money is. Jason Wu’s work is probably too romantic to fit Balenciaga’s image. So Alexander was left.
Let’s hope for the best, I’ll keep my fingers crossed and my eyes wide open to see what’s gonna become of Balenciaga. Maybe he can copy some of Balenciaga’s old stuff :p
Ps. People are already saying that they will stop buying Balenciaga when Alexander Wang’s gonna rule the throne. Just sharing some thoughts here…
