Alexander Wang, the king of downtown cool, has brought his signature urban edge to the classic fashion house of Balenciaga. Appointed in 2012, he follows in the footsteps of the renowned Nicholas GhesquiÃ¨re and the label's founder, CristÃ³bal Balenciaga. Founded in 1918, Balenciaga is known for its sculptural pieces, curved hems and trademark silhouette of an oversized top balanced with narrow bottoms. Balenciaga's jumpsuits are an example of the brand's distinctive house codes. With streamlined styles including sleek, crepe jumpsuits, to military inspired flight suits and satin, draped playsuits, there's an array of styles to suit the occasion.
