Demna Gvasalia presented his first collection for Balenciaga today in Paris’s 15th Arrondissement. Mixing shapes from Cristobal Balenciaga‘s archive with contemporary fashion pieces like puffer jackets and jeans, Gvasalia worked to fuse his streetwise aesthetic with that of the house’s founder. Did it work? We’ll let Vogue.com Chief Critic Sarah Mower explain the ins and outs of the collection in her review—in the meantime, find the nine memorable moments from the show here.

1. The show was held in Canal +’s former studio. The runway was a square box with foam-padded walls, and the soundtrack was so loud the room practically vibrated.

2. Fellow designers came out to support Gvasalia, including Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and Jacquemus’s Simon Porte Jacquemus.

3. Show notes on each seat extolled the virtues of couture and of Mr. Balenciaga’s famous shapes, defining this collection as “a reimagining of the work of Cristobal Balenciaga—a wardrobe of absolute contemporaneity and realism imbued with the attitude of haute couture. A translation, not a reiteration. A new chapter.”


4. The show opened with a section of padded hip suits, skirting, and dresses, each with an imposed hourglass silhouette. Most were in gray or tan checks and worn with thigh-high boots that echoed the styles shown on Vetements’s runway.

5. Balenciaga’s cocoon shape was reimagined as anoraks in cobalt and kelly green.

6. Many tops and jackets were pulled off the shoulder, creating a rounded shape on the sleeves.

8. There was no shortage of accessories on the runway, from the weighty metal jewelry, to the giant-size market totes, to the platform
boots that accompanied some looks.

9. Models included longtime catwalkers like Julia Nobis and Iris Strubegger, as well as street cast artists and musicians, like Jane Moseley and DJ Clara 3000.
