About us

Cristóbal Balenciaga founded the House in 1917 in his home country of Spain. In 1937, he established the brand in Paris, designing its collections there until 1968. Cristóbal Balenciaga had a reputation as a couturier of uncompromising standards and was referred to as "the master of us all" by Christian Dior and as "The Couturier of the Couturiers" by Gabrielle Chanel. The ultra-modern shapes were trademarks of the house.

While the brand's identity is firmly rooted in its highly conceptual prêt-à-porter collections, its leather goods, footwear, and accessories experience worldwide success as well. Among the archetypal products of the House are its handbag collections. A new focus on the development of Balenciaga ready-to-wear collections for men was quickly established as highly successful.

Since October 2015, Demna Gvasalia has designed both men's and women's collections as the artistic director.

The Balenciaga House, part of the Kering group since 2001, is one of the most influential names in fashion.
