Same here. I'm so shocked. Did not see this coming at all.
He was perfect for Balenciaga. Just look at the hundreds of "this looks like Balenciaga" comments in every collection thread on tFS, he has really made the brand his own and developed such a distinct look for the brand that has become so influential and popular, I can't imagine him getting replaced by anyone else, those are some huge shoes to fill
I really wonder what his plans are for the future. This is so strange.
