After Nicolas Ghesquière had left Balenciaga, we did not have much time to wonder who would lead the European fashion house. Several publications (New York Magazine, Le Nouvel Observateur and others) shared the news that Christopher Kane would become the new Balenciaga creative director.
Having defeated such fashion designers as Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra, and Olivier Theyskens, Christopher will start fulfilling his new duties on December 1. And, according to rumors, he has a lot of ideas that he is eager to realize with the new brand.
The fashion community treated this news with interest, since each new collection by Kane becomes an event in the fashion world. The young designer was once noticed by Donatella Versace, who entrusted the youth clothing line Versus to be revived by Kane. Donatella herself has often confessed that the young man reminds her of Gianni Versace in his youth.
In addition to his collaboration with Versace, our hero has his own Christopher Kane brand, where he embodies all his bright ideas.
We also send our congratulations and wish Christopher Kane to multiply, or maybe even outshine, the success of his predecessor.
