Now that the speculation as to who will fill Nicolas Ghesquière's shoes at Balenciaga is over, rumours can begin as to what exactly Alexander Wang will bring to the storied French fashion house.
Speaking to WWD , François-Henri Pinault, the CEO of Balenciaga's parent company PPR, has given us this tasty little fashion morsel: Balenciaga could be about to move into couture once again.
Does this mean we could be seeing Balenciaga on the couture schedule in the next few seasons, courtesy of Wang? Or is it just simply a turn of phrase? Balenciaga is, after all, one of the original couture houses from the golden age of haute couture.
