Fashion Friday: Balenciaga SS18

One of the most hyped brands around today has given the people what they want for SS18.

Oversized puffer jackets and those chunky sneakers that are being worn, replicated and seen everywhere feature in a Balenciaga drop that embodies the recent history of the brand.

Back by the most popular demand you can even imagine, the Triple S sneaker returns in style in two brand new colours;┬áblack/grey/red and black/burgundy/white. It’s these which will likely be the most talked about aspect of this seasonal drop from Balenciaga, yet there’s plenty to else to enjoy with some timeless looking pieces.

Take the two-piece tracksuit, as they bring a track jacket and pants together to create an old-school sporty look. With people clambering through attics for old sportswear and scanning eBay and Depop for vintage pieces, the release of a strong two-piece of their own fits in with current trends.

Also, chequered shirts and simple-enough denim shouldn’t excite – they’re staples of anyone’s wardrobe – yet they are pulled off perfectly here with simplicity breeding something brilliant. Less simplicity and traditional pieces come in the form of the grey puffer, as this loud addition to the capsule provide a real standout piece – especially as the weather gets warmer.
