It looks like one Azealia Banks will be wearing a lot of Balenciaga in the near future. WWD confirms Alexander Wang is taking the reins as creative director at Balenciaga, replacing Nicolas Ghesquière, who left the label a mere few weeks ago.
This appointment will almost certainly bring drastic changes to the Balenciaga aesthetic, but perhaps the house itself is looking to change its sartorial tune. WWD says; “The choice of Wang suggests Balenciaga might wish to dial down the elitist, couture-like approach of Ghesquière, and open up to a broader audience with a designer prized for his sportswear approach and youthful energy.”
