Due to drop in a bunch of June magazines, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga‘s new creative director (as if you didn’t know already), has enlisted the genius eye of photographer Steven Klein + one of my all time favorite models, Kristen McMenamy, to perfectly capture the look + feel of his debut collection (great pairing, if you ask me). Although Kristen’s face will not be featured, the focal point of the campaign will be the craft, detail + texture of the clothes.
And if you happen to miss buying any magazines in June, you’ll have the opportunity to see it all over the new Balenciaga women’s store at 148 Mercer Street, scheduled to open this fall (still under construction), with the Men’s shop across the street at No. 149. Super exciting, isn’t it?!
