Balenciaga’s Spring-Summer Collection for 2018

Balenciaga’s Spring-Summer Collection for 2018

About a month ago it was fashion-week in some parts of the world. Fresh women’s wear collections for Spring/Summer 2018 were presented once again. Balenciaga showed in Paris. Below the most demure looks of the pret-a-porter show. One of our favorites because these outfits really seem to be an instant a holiday-trip to us!

Worth mentionable is the fact that Balenciaga asked the Crocs brand if they could produce a platform shoe. They could. Result: the ‘Foam’ shoes, lightweight-odor-free-water-resistant-fully-molded-platform-Crocs in Croslite™ material.

According to Highsnobiety blog the Balenciaga Triple S sneaker was the most spotted sneaker on the feet of the audience. (See that street-style sneaker report here at it’s fun!) We wonder if the Foam platforms will be equally popular, what do you think?







RVDK showing at Couture Week Paris

RVDK showing at Couture Week Paris

The letters RVDK stand for Ronald van der Kemp, a Dutch fashion designer who started his own first demi-couture label, for Fall 2015: RVDK. He and his team have been slowly working towards the opportunity to show, officially, in Paris during Couture Week, June 2017. (showing the collection for Fall/Winter 2018). That’s kind of a big deal; you have to be a member of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode. Other Dutch fashion designers showing this season are Iris van Herpen, Viktor & Rolf and Belgian designers A.F. Vandervorst. (Obviously we are rooting for the BeNeLux)

Gratuliere to you all at RVDK!
