The Guardian mocks latest T-shirt by Georgian designer Demna Gvasalia

Now Gvasalia came up with his new revolutionary T-shirt that has attracted media outlets around the world. The Guardian has put its focus on Balenciaga’s latest trend that caused controversial reactions among consumers. According to
the magazine, “the piece, which is just a T-shirt with a long-sleeved shirt draped on top of it, is the fashion house’s latest attention-seeking design.”

However, as The Guardian reports, Balenciaga’s T-shirt is “perfect gift for the man who has everything except, perhaps, self-respect.”

The price of each piece is $1,290. “That might seem like a lot but remember you’re getting a T-shirt and a shirt, it’s basically buy one get one free,” reports The Guardian.

According to the British newspaper, “Balenciaga are the masters of convincing their customers to part with large amounts of their money while making them look ridiculous. Ever since creative director Demna Gvasalia took the helm of the Spanish fashion brand, they seem to have been trolling us mercilessly with fashion that’s designed to go viral.”

Balenciaga x Crocs has also attracted mass attention. Always considered a divisive shoe, Crocs have officially come out on top and proven their place in the world of high-fashion - after Balenciaga’s $850 version of the shoe sold out before they were released.

“Despite costing $850 and looking like they were designed by a preschooler, the Balenciaga platform crocs sold out before they were officially for sale,” reads the article.

According to the article, trolling the fashion world seems to be working out well for Balenciaga.

“Last week the chief executive of Kering, a global luxury group that manages the likes of Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent, and Gucci, said that Balenciaga was the fastest growing brand within its group. They attributed this growth to men and young millennials most of whom, one imagines, aren’t actually buying the more outlandish items like T-Shirt Shirts but Balenciaga’s more down-to-earth designs. Like the $915 black leggings or the $395 leather wallets with “leather wallet” stamped on the front – only marginally more sensible.”

Demna Gvasalia has retained his role as head designer and spokesperson for Vetements

Internationally recognized designer Demna Gvasalia was born in 1981 in Sokhumi, the capital of Georgia’s breakaway region of Abkhazia.

Demna Gvasalia’s status in the fashion industry was cemented when it was announced in October 2015 that he would be taking over as artistic director of Balenciaga. Francçois-Henri Pinault, president and chief executive of Kering — parent company to the historic Parisian house — praised the designer as "a powerful emerging force in today's creative world." Gvsalia’s first collection for the brand debuted at Paris Fashion Week in March 2016.

Alongside his creative directorship at Balenciaga, Gvasalia – who studied at Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts – has retained his role as head designer and spokesperson for Vetements, the buzzed-about collective of seven anonymous designers where he made his name after rising through the ranks at Louis Vuitton and Maison Martin Margiela. After just three seasons, the brand was nominated for LVMH’s Young Fashion Designer Prize.
