Balenciaga Takes MOJEH Men Into The Matrix

Balenciaga presents us with a new reality for its men’s Summer 22 collection. Deconstructed tailoring, shapes and concepts, plus reinterpreted classics and functional accessories, lead us into this brave new world

Some could argue tailoring has taken a back seat since the pandemic, where the lockdown uniform consisted largely of loungewear. However, we would counter that tailoring has simply been reinvented. Case in point: Balenciaga’s bold-shouldered blazers and exaggerated silhouettes. Sleeves are extra (extra) long on blazers and trenches alike while trousers are equally roomy. Balenciaga has also made over the classic Derby, presenting a futuristic, single-mould alternative dubbed the Space Shoe. With the lines of gendered collections continuing to blur, midriff-baring hoodies are worn alongside structured shoulder bags, the latter of which the House has transformed into a perfectly practical companion for the working man.

Though tailoring is a highlight of Balenciaga Men 2022, the House’s streetwear inspiration is evident throughout the collection – think hoodies, sweatpants and relaxed silhouettes. The monochrome palette may be moody for summer, but Balenciaga has never adhered to the norm, so why start now? Shop the collection
