The Balenciaga SS18 collection has just dropped, and we’re loving it. The collection takes on norm-core fashion with its boxy and oversized cuts, complementing it with the iconic dad-shoe trend. Creative director of Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia, looks to the ’80s and ’90s for a nostalgic old-school aesthetic brought to life not just through the apparel, but also through the collection’s lookbook as seen on Balenciaga’s official Instagram.
Despite the mixed reviews of the collection, we have broken it down to find that it is in fact wearable and versatile, with the exception of the down jacket that is just way too hot for our tropical weather.
True to its dad-core concept, the Balenciaga SS18 collection comprises oversized and elongated outerwears, straight-legged and loose-fitting pants alongside the iconic Triple S sneakers in three different colorways.
