With the onset of the winter wonderland, Balenciaga embraces the snowy slopes in its maiden ski venture.
Balenciaga’s entry into the world of skiing is a long-awaited journey, considering its deep-rooted affinity for oversized quilted jackets and icy color palettes. This Parisian brand is all set for the frosty season as it unveils its premier ski collection.
The range encompasses an array of technical apparel, accessories, and skiing essentials. Within this collection, you’ll discover a spectrum of outerwear, gloves, footwear, and goggles, alongside ski equipment, including poles, backpacks, and even a snowboard. Balenciaga’s distinctive touch marries transgressive elegance with the essential technicality for the post-ski experience.
Among the standout features are Balenciaga’s newly minted skis and snowboards, meticulously fashioned from mirror-polished Titanal, ensuring precision, responsiveness, and unwavering high-speed stability. And when it comes to footwear, the novel Alaska boot arrives in leather, nylon, and faux fur iterations, complete with removable chains to cater to your personal style.
This remarkable collection will make its debut exclusively at the Isetan Shinjuku Men’s Building in Tokyo, with a selection of unique pieces solely accessible at the pop-up store. The excitement doesn’t stop there, as the pop-up experience will extend to Seoul, where a similar installation will be unveiled at the Shinsegae Gangnam department store on the 22nd of November.
