Balenciaga F/W 2024 Fashion Show – Meditate

Balenciaga show

Balenciaga’ wants you to watch the show and chill. We’re not kidding. When we thought we’ve seen it all, here comes Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia with a new surprise.

The Balenciaga fall/winter 2024/25 fashion show took place a couple of days ago in Paris. And it was all about breathe in/breathe out – zen, peace, calmness. Besides the clothes, of course.

“Hello and welcome. In today’s session we will learn a pathway towards a happier life,” a voiceover in the beginning of the video. “When you’re ready, you can close your eyes and begin with some deep breaths.”

And then – “Inhale a maximum of air and exhale all the air out, slowing your breath down,” the narrator continues. “Repeat this process three times.”

There is something incredibly comforting and cozy about the oversized, cocoon-shaped silhouettes being soundtracked by a 10-minute meditative tool kit on how to invite joy into our cluttered minds. And, equally, how it can be channeled on a daily basis through empathy and compassion.

“Take a moment to think about what it means to you to lead a truly happy life,” the narrator concluded. “What would it allow you to do?”

Chilled out? Ok, so now let’s talk about the clothes. And bingo, the first look is denim. An oversized grey tee with cocoon-shaped 3/4 length sleeves and super-sized jeans made to look like as if a jacket is tied around the waist set Demna’s mode: a tribute to subculture dress codes. Styled with a huge, eccentric saucer hat, the look was all but a prelude to the collection of everyday garments to follow.

Have a look below at all the denim looks from Balenciaga’s fall/winter 2024/25 collection. We still have to wait for a couple of months for these pieces . But meantime you can shop for current Balenciaga clothing on the brand’s website, at Cettire, and at Nordstrom.

Also included are some eye-catching leather pieces in truest Demna oversize style 😉
