It must have been something very serious, something much more severe than a bad review or bad journalism. It sounds like something very personal to me.

Perhaps they had some kind of agreement in terms of advertising and features, and Vogue failed to do so?

I sense it may be something to do with Marie-Amelie too. It's strange that they stopped using David Sims (a Vogue Paris favourite) for their campaigns too. Steven Meisel is about as far away from Vogue Paris as you can get.

This is just strange, but it sounds like Balenciaga are trying to distance themselves from Vogue Paris and everything/everyone associated, no?

I hadn't even noticed that Balenciaga has been absent from recent issues of VP either.
Now that Marie-Amelie Sauve is mentioned.. I'd love to know why!

I'm guessing that this is why. She hasn't styled a single editorial for Vogue Paris in quite a long time...

It's too bad really, M.A. Sauve is my favorite stylist and Balenciaga is my favorite brand. Vogue Paris used to be my favorite magazine.

Very surprised, and shocked by this, it had to be something serious for Balenciaga to do this, but it does happen a lot in the industry( even Wintour was blacklisted by YSL once), and bans get lifted just as often.

I NEED to know why they are blacklisted. You see more Balenciaga items in VP than the other Vogues. Carine is always wearing the clothes and the VP girls were the first ones to be given the Le Dix/Lariat bag. They have always supported that house so something really bad (and juicy) must have happened.

^ Do they? I don't follow the other Vogues nearly as much as I follow American Vogue, but American Vogue features at least one Balenciaga outfit (they're on a really big "one designer look" trip now, so usually it is one outfit) per issue, and they have Balenciaga advertisements as well.

I don't think it's at Nicola's level is it? evn though he is the creative director, would he be given the freedom to ban VP?

I think he knows inevitably.... But has it the freedom to decide it by his own? I don't know....

Yes it's seems to be childish but I don't think someone has the freedom to do this by her/his own without talk to Ghesquiere or PPR group (and I don't think the decision comes from PPR)
