Balenciaga, Canine knit
When one thinks of Balenciaga, keywords like haute couture, construction, structure and innovation come to mind. What doesn’t however, is Canine knit sweater.
The (post-post) ironic knit jumper has been a mainstay in most wardrobes of Dalston and Williamsburg residents for many years, and while a strong option that may be, it came as a surprise that this would have bubbled from street level to the ‘thinking fashionista’s fashion label’. Perhaps this amiable Alsatian was included to offset Givenchy’s a/w offering of menacing Rottweilers.
While not for everyone’s taste, the angora and nylon mix will surely be warm enough to keep the biting winds at bay this winter.
