Balenciaga is re-writing the rules of what it means to be a luxury fashion brand today, and supercharging customer intent in the process. The brand’s Snow Storm show was not only trending on social media but also presented some of the trendiest pieces of the year. Perhaps the most popular bag of the year the Balenciaga Le Cagole has definitely achieved It Bag status, it is hard to go on social media and not see this bag. Some controversial Balenciaga products have been the garbage bag and the chip bag, not really wearable pieces but that generate the buzz the brand wants.
Some celebrities to participate in Balenciaga campaigns or fashion shows were Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa and Nicole Kidman.
Some of the most popular products of the year were Prada, like the Triangle bag, the leather loafers, the Symbole sunglasses and the logo tank top. With creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons Prada’s new collections were met with high demand. A new bag called the Re-Edition 1995 is also achieving it bag status, becoming a chic staple of the brand.
