The countdown to Christmas is now well underway and with that, it’s time to put some thought into the gifts that will be going under your tree this holiday season. Making the present selection process just that little bit easier for the fashion aficionados among us, Balenciaga has launched a timely holiday-themed campaign featuring the house’s key pieces.
Keeping in line with creative director Demna’s inimitable edge, the campaign sees Balenciaga favourites photographed on a grocery store checkout lane conveyor belt, presented in a medley of different themes fashioned out of womenswear, menswear and homeware items. Here, Vogue Singapore hones in on who to keep in mind and what to get them during your next Balenciaga shopping trip.
For the sophisticated woman on-the-go
The first and most understated curation of the collection features highlights from the Hourglass line as well as items such as coasters and champagne flutes. For those who prefer structured yet statement-making silhouettes that range from black and white to silver and green, these are the pieces to take note of.
For the ‘more means more’ fashion lover
Slouchy silhouettes rule with the house’s Le Cagole handbag line which is sure to add a generous helping of edge and style to anyone’s sartorial collection. Touted as an accessory that appeals to the fashion maximalists, it is a winning ticket for carrying about town and comes with a removable pouch and mirror for added functionality.
Also available in an array of styles and colourways is the Hourglass wallet with chain. Choose from a selection that includes an iteration in shiny crocodile-embossed leather with an aged-gold strap or opt for the top handle iteration in yuletide forest green, dark crimson or glittery grey.
For the streetwear lover
As part of Balenciaga’s third and final curation is a display of fur-lined variations of Balenciaga’s sell-out Speed sneaker and Triple S trainer range that are fit for streetwear enthusiasts. If you are on the lookout for something more feminine though, look no further than the Essex pump. Crafted out of gold python-effect calfskin, the shoe has an elegant stiletto heel that pairs well with dresses, skirts and trousers alike.
The options don’t end here, either. The house’s selection of stylish accessories also includes gold brass B Chain hoop earrings adorned with rhinestones, the Rodeo Drive silk twill scarf as well as the vegetable leather belt and cardholder to name a few—so best believe that come this Christmas, you’ll have absolutely no style stone left unturned.
The Balenciaga Holiday 2021 collection is now available in Balenciaga boutiques in Singapore and on balenciaga.com.
