    Of course those are bads new but it makes sense.

    Balenciaga now is about MONEY, MONEY, MONEY , so Wang could be the perfect candidate to create silhouettes with models carrying the future IT BAGS for every seson and targetting a younger clientèle ...

    I dont get at all how could anyone think that Wang, based on what he has shown in his work so far, could handle a house like Balenciaga?! Just doesnt make sense.

    I'm genuinly worried... I don't absolutely hate Wang's work (though I really don't like him, but that's a whole other story), but he doesn't have the technical skill, the craftmanship, nor the creativity to design for a house as authoral and innovative as Balenciaga.

    If I read other posts in other threads correctly, I was under the impression that whomever "owns" the Alexander Wang brand had major plans to expand his company to exhausting heights, ie: more stores, more lines, more this, more that. If that is the case, then to do all that, AND try to do Balenciaga at the same time, all while him and his own company is still very young, just seems like way too much to handle..prime example of biting off way more than he'd be able to chew. So far that reason alone, nevermind actual design skills, I hope this is just a mere rumor.

    Well whatever the replacement, we all know that Balenciaga is only interesting with Nicholas in it! Wang is cheap and only reason for the job!
