Alexander Wang presented in China Balenciaga’s spring 2014 collection, along with a “China Edition” consisting of 13 custom looks that were designed exclusively for the Chinese market.
This collection will be available at the brand’s Beijing store. Wang stated that “The consumers here have become much more evolved. The taste and the style have grown beyond the bigger brands that have a major presence.”
An exhibit of 40 designs by house founder Cristobal Balenciaga was also displayed as part of the event, marking the first time such pieces had been exhibited in China. (They included iconic looks like the 1939 Infante Dress and the 1958 Baby Doll Dress.) L
