For over a century, Cristobal Balenciaga's uncompromising Spanish classic has been delivering royal looks.
The designs delivered by the men's Balenciaga collection are noted for their sleek, modernistic silhouettes disrupting the wider trends that were prevalent during the period. The fluidity of the designs established Balenciaga as a favourite amongst the Spanish aristocracy and royal family. Cristobal Balenciaga redefined the interaction between clothing and bodies in order to showcase the attributes of the individual rather than allowing the clothes to deliver the silhouette. Experiments with the fabrics used to make Balenciaga clothing in the 1960s resulted in more imaginative usage of heavy fabrics, complex embroidery, and innovative materials.
Balenciaga, ever the rebel, was never welcomed into the realm of traditional haute-couture, preferring to play by his own rules despite earning the admiration of many prominent designers. Christian Dior, perhaps Cristobal Balenciaga's most renowned protege, defined the label as "the master of us all." Brother2Brother are proud to stock a wide array of men's Balenciaga clothing, stylish accessories and footwear, including hooded tops, sweaters, t-shirts and more majestically modern designs that cut through traditional haute-couture and fashion for men today.
