Alexander Wang To Replace Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga

Alexander Wang Is Headed to Balenciaga, Sources Confirm

Alexander Wang is indeed set to replace Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga. According to WWD, the rumored change-up was confirmed by market sources last night, but neither Wang's nor Balenciaga's people have yet to confirm the news. Wang's nomination to take over the prestigious helm at Balenciaga — it was only announced at the beginning of November that Nicolas Ghesquière was leaving — has no doubt come off as a surprising choice. Since launching his full namesake collection in 2008, Wang has been touted as the cool New York designer, recognised for his tomboy aesthetic, slouchy muscle tees, and covetable studded Rocco bag. Meanwhile, Balenciaga's brand has always focused on tight tailoring, structure, and inventive use of color. Because Wang's boy-wonder status and business acumen have garnered much respect in the industry, it could be that Balenciaga is looking to revamp their brand, hoping to add a younger, more accessible tilt to its almost century-old luxury goods. We'll update you with details once we hear more!
