It’s been half a century since Balenciaga has had a couture show, but now, the fashion house is back on the scene in a big way.
Along with the label’s long-awaited return, onlookers marveled over seeing a familiar-yet-fresh model: Ella Emhoff.
The 22-year-old blooming runway star, who is also the stepdaughter of Vice President Kamala Harris, was spotted in what Balenciaga dubbed “Look #7,” a long, black, double-breasted coat, along with an extravagant satin stole.
She also wore her signature round-framed glasses with her hair pulled back.
In a note posted to the show’s website, Gvasalia elaborated on Balenciaga’s 2021 haute couture show saying, “The re-launch of couture line will offer the highest creative and qualitative level of product to our customer, as well as complete my multi-layered vision for Balenciaga the brand, which ranges all the way up from streetwear into conceptual fashion and wardrobe and ultimately into one-of-a-kind, made-to-measure couture pieces.”
Gvasalia also confirmed that this season’s show was a tribute to the legacy of founder Cristóbal Balenciaga, who left the brand in the late 1960s.
Show attendees included rapper Kanye West, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and more.
