Alexander Wang for Balenciaga?


Still just a rumour at this point, the empty berth at Balenciaga, left following the announcement that Nicolas Ghesqueire is leaving the cult label,appears to have Alexander Wang's name on it, according to New York Times critic Cathy Horyn.

Looks like "The Tale of who takes over as creative director of Balenciaga", is coming to an end. As reported today, Purple Magazine, the New York-based designer, who set up his label in 2007 aged 23, would certainly bring a new fanbase. His aesthetic, often based around sportswear details and a tough, warrior look, has attracted the downtown cognoscenti of New York, plus he has fashion plates such as model Erin Wasson, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and Azealia Banks on speed dial. If Ghesquiere brought a boundary-pushing edginess, Wang might add the commercial angle that PPR, the parent company, are after. A $25m turnover by the time you're 25 would have surely caught their attention.
The fashion house has not yet made ​​an official statement ,we will just have to wait and see.
