Constantly referencing archival material, Demna Gvasalia focuses on conceptual elements of the past and formative years of Cristóbal Balenciaga since the house was established, whilst combining notions of every-day modern day times. The Spanish house was founded in 1917 and Cristóbal Balenciaga himself was a renowned couturier of uncompromising standards and revered by the likes of Christian Dior and Coco Chanel. His bubble skirts and innovative, feminine, "modernistic" silhouettes became the trademarks of the house. In fact, many famous designers worked and were tutored by Balenciaga, before creating their own successful houses including Oscar De La Renta and Hubert de Givenchy.
The ‘Demna’ signatures and cult silhouettes at Parlour X include Hourglass figured suiting, deconstructed shirting, oversized dresses, logo statements and the Triple S sneakers.
