The creative director of the Balenciaga luxury fashion house, Demna Gvasalia, has chosen plastic crocuses as the main model for the spring shoes for the spring season.
You can love this model, you can hate it, but staying indifferent to it is difficult. These plastic shoes are widely known both for their convenience and because of their rude shape, far from beauty and elegance. And at the Fashion Week in Paris, crocuses appear on the feet of fashion models during the fashion show of the collection of the luxury brand Balenciaga. Creative director of the brand Demna Gvasalia put crocuses on a ten-meter platform and decorated them with funny details reminiscent of souvenir magnets in design.
Gvasalia said that crocuses are very modern shoes, as they are lightweight and injection molded, and in the future such shoes can be easily made independently using an 3D printer, in his opinion this style is in harmony with the concept of the Balenciaga brand.
However, in social networks, the new Balenciaga shoe collection met with a wave of criticism, as many felt that a luxury brand with an 15-year history should not go down to plastic shoes.
