Bye Balenciaga: 12 of Alexander Wang's best looks as creative director
According to a report from WWD, Alexander Wang and Balenciaga are reportedly discontinuing their partnership. In 2012, Wang took over the reins of the venerable luxury fashion label from Nicolas Ghesquière to much fanfare, and his first few collections were received warmly by the fashion establishment. Now three years on, Kering (the parent company of Balenciaga) has decided not to renew Wang's contract for unknown reasons, according to WWD, and the spring/summer 2016 show in September will be Wang's last collection for the house. As the house of Balenciaga gears up to find a replacement, we take a look back at the 12 best looks from Wang's short-lived tenure as creative director.
