DARIA X BALENCIAGA SS14




Alexander Wang sure is doing the house of Balenciaga proud, recruiting none other than the flawless Daria Werbowy herself to front the Spring/Summer 14 campaign. And the results are sheer perfection.

I admit I had my doubts in the beginning about Wang’s ability to continue on from Ghesquière (who I believe to be one of the most influential creatives of our time), I've found myself falling hard for his designs for the label and am left amazed by his overall creative direction time and time again.

These shots just encapsulate everything that Balenciaga is about: luxe, empowering and a whole lotta sexy. Also Daria is completely killing it, channeling Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct complete with dark lips - girl is on fire!

Have a beautiful weekend, lovers!

  2. get out! daria is back and she is doing wonderful things. cannot get enough of her, she is killing every campaign and editorial spreads. as for wang, i applaud him also. i was a little hesitant at first too, but if this is a sneak peek of what the future holds, i think we're in for some pretty big things. and ps. you should definately snap up some triangl bathers. they really are incredible! i have four pairs and counting... x.

  4. Yes! Total Basic Instinct inspiration! First thing that came to mind when I first laid eyes upon this campaign. I can't wait to see what AW comes up with down the track, I think it's an exciting new beginning for Balenciaga!
