Of course, this isn’t the first time Balenciaga’s style head Demna Gvasalia has teamed up with Crocs. Understood for his turbulent style, in October 2017, he debuted a set of platform crocs at the Spring 2018 show in Paris.
“To me these sort of methods and also working with these sort of products is very Balenciaga,” he claimed at the time. At rates that ranged from $495 to $850, the systems marketed out before they were also launched.
“Ugly products have come to be so ironic that they’re now trendy, thanks to designer brand names introducing their very own unsightly apparel products,” composes Business Insider’s Mary Hanbury.
“It’s an excellent advertising tactic– these unattractive products with huge cost develop a backlash and also succeeding buzz on social networks.”
When it comes to now, it’s vague when (or if) the Balenciaga/Croc heels will certainly be available for purchase, however in the meantime, we’ll be trying to find them on every one of our favorite fashion influencers. Since, yea, Crocs are amazing now. Isn’t it paradoxical?
