Helmed by the infamous Demna, Balenciaga has been at the forefront of luxury fashion for the last few years. Arguably one of the most viral (and controversial) labels, their collaborative efforts stretch wide. We have seen the Kering-owned label work with The Simpsons, Fortnite, PlayStation, and even Gap with the help of Yeezy. Before the brand received backlash due to an ad campaign that forced adidas to pause their collaboration, Balenciaga showcased Supreme box logo designs in the Spring/Summer 2023 fashion show last October. Many questioned whether or not we would be seeing this fusion of streetwear and luxury fashion hit retail shelves. However, it has been confirmed by dondasplacethat the collaboration was canceled.
Alongside items from the brand’s canceled F/W 2023 collection, models are pictured wearing Supreme-branded items (and Balenciaga/Supreme-infused logos) on silhouettes the fashion house is well known for. One picture showcases an all-black hoodie with Balenciaga proudly displayed in the same format as the iconic Supreme BOGO. However, the cut of the hoodie appears to be similar to Yeezy Gap Engineered By Balenciaga hoodies. Other pieces, like the oversized camo cargo suit, long sleeves, jeans, and pants, play off Balenciaga’s distorted proportions while featuring in-your-face Supreme branding.
We also got a look at accessories and footwear that were to be included in the collaboration. Like the infamous collaboration with Lay’s showcased in the same runway show, co-branded plastic bags are present. Some models are seen sporting bright red leather mules with Supreme plastered across the forefoot in the NYC brand’s famous white font.
The Supreme x Balenciaga Collection, according to dondasplace, was canceled and will not be seeing a retail release. See below for looks from Balenciaga’s canceled Fall/Winter 2023 collection that showcased some of the items in this collaboration.
