Have statement pieces gone too far?
Balenciaga is credited as the genius fashion house behind the ugly sneaker phase, and look at the world now — loaded with ugly sneakers, and seemingly better for it. The Basque luxe fashion house is known for thought-provoking pieces that more closely resemble conversation starters than good form, but we’re wondering, has Balenciaga actually gone too far this time, or is this the most Instagram-worthy fashion piece of the century?
Their latest load of men’s shirts look like they’re straight out of mental institutions.
For roughly $1,500 USD, Balenciaga suggests your ownership of their “tshirt shirt” is a good idea. It features a striped short-sleeved tee, not unlike a Hanes shirt, layered with a less-than-thoughtful long sleeved buttondown shirt sewn on top. Just to be clear, no, you cannot separate them and wear them as cute, individual pieces. They come as a set, stay as a set, and let people know that you have extremely questionable judgment.
According to the obviously well-paid copywriters at Balenciaga, you can either wear the long sleeves as a wacky front panel design, or as a faux double layer. We’re thinking it may be time for a drug bust near their corporate offices.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed for the world of fashion. #prayforbalenciaga
