Balenciaga rolls out new logo

Oct 3, 2017

Balenciaga debuted a redesigned logo on Sunday via its e-commerce store and social media networks, right before the Kering Group-owned luxury brand introduced a new script at 11:30am during the label’s presentation of their ready to wear Spring/Summer collection for 2018.

Modified under the guidance of the brand’s Artistic Director, Demna Gvasalia, who has been in the position since the end of 2015, the logo remains simple but the typography has been changed. It appears more condensed and thicker. The logo is, according to the brand’s mini-statement, “inspired by the clarity of signal signs found in public transport.”

In a very technical teaser-video, the logo appears in a high-tech environment, printed on a camera reconstructed in 3D. The mark made on the brand by the Georgian designer, who is also the founder of the Vetements collective, is now even deeper through its “sombre and radical image,” the brand claimed.

Balenciaga, which now boasts 115 boutiques worldwide, is also pursuing further development. The brand has recently opened a new 400 square metre boutique in Paris situated on 57, Avenue Montaigne.
