Inspired by the field > adapted sprightly for the sideline.
The Demna Gvasalia-helmed house FW20 collection looks inspired by football, designs interpretation of high-end kits in apparel and accessories. A kit wouldn’t be complete without a set of cleats, which happen to be the latest addition to the collection. Available in selected stores worldwide starting tomorrow, September 24th.
Cleats will retail for $725 and available in monochromatic colorways: black, white, red, and neon pink. Made from vegan leather one could easily mistake these pieces as functional on the field pieces but are intended strictly for everyday streetwear. Balenciaga’s fragmentation and deconstruction of sports-specific apparel and accessories function are further exasperating the converging space and relationships between sportswear, fashion, streetwear, and luxury.
