The upscale clothing brand will provide a selection of technologically sophisticated ready-to-wear accessories, gear, and equipment that blend cutting-edge materials with distinctive Balenciaga designs.
Balenciaga is launching practical sportswear for the first time, including snowboards, skis, poles, helmets, and equipment for hiking, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiing.
In terms of clothing, the line has cargo pants and parkas constructed of membrane-bonded technical ripstop equipped with battery-saving pockets, ventilation systems, integrated snow gaiters, and ski pass holders to keep wearers warm and organized on the slopes.
The collection also has five-pocket ski trousers in bonded stretch nylon, close-fitting fleece jackets, and jackets and vests in quilted matte nylon, all in line with the house’s signature designs.
Blue stretch denim jeans with a waterproof fleece lining are among the technical ready-to-wear goods. They provide a pole-attachable ski backpack and a ski belt bag for increased convenience. Both are composed of water-repellent recycled nylon and have lined non-scratch goggle pockets.
The majority of the pieces come in traditional shades of black, grey, or red, with black thermal layers that include long-sleeved half-zip tops, hoodies, and fluffy knits in addition to mink-style fake fur and thick molleton, fisherman-ribbed wool, and fluffy knits.
Accessory options include a ribbed knit beanie with folding sunglasses that bring a touch of luxury to the slopes and cushioned gloves made of sturdy ripstop that can be firmly fastened to jacket sleeves. In addition, various cold-weather-appropriate leggings, socks, facemasks, gloves, and scarves are available in various forms and fabrics, all emblazoned with the sporty, reflective Balenciaga emblem.
Two pairs of shoes round out the selection. The Alaska Boot reimagines the traditional Arctic shoe, giving it a unique edge in style and large dimensions. The 3XL Ski Sneaker, on the other hand, is a snow-capable variation of the original 3XL made to resist the severe winter weather.
The brand will start a campaign to coincide with the release of the Balenciaga skiwear line. In the future, there will also be window installations and pop-up stores.
