Wang says bye!

KERING MADE IT OFFICIAL THIS WEEKEND: THE FRENCH COUTURE HOUSE BALENCIAGA AND ALEXANDER WANG HAVE ANNOUNCED THEIR DECISION TO SPLIT.

After two and a half years in close collaboration, the New York based designer wants to focus on his own brand. “It’s been an incredible experience to work with a couture house in Paris. I am honored to have had the opportunity to work for this historical maison. I would like to thank the brilliant team at Balenciaga for their collaboration and for what we have accomplished together, and I am looking forward to taking my own brand to its next level of growth,” Wang said.The creative director’s grand finale with the French brand will be the Spring/Summer 2016 show set to take places on October 2nd during Paris Fashion Week. It was quite a short trip to Paris but understandable considering the effort Wang is interested in implement for his own label. And now that his departure is official only one question is left unanswered: Who will replace him?
