The spring collection includes Balenciaga’s new line of garden gowns, evening wear and a collaboration with Adidas. The latter includes shoes, bags, jewelry and accessories with the Adidas logo, and sportswear under the Balenciaga brand. While garde-robe showcases wardrobes with high cuts, crisp hems and handcrafted fabrics like wool, silk, gabardine and denim, the eveningwear collection offers an updated look with bodycon dresses, off-the-shoulder tuxedos and ruffled silk coats.
