Under Demna Gvasalia’s creative direction, Balenciaga has embraced expressive layering techniques, at times stacking multiple shirts & jackets in a variety of styles, colors, and prints in the same ensemble, as was recently shown in the house’s Fall/Winter 2018 and Pre-Fall 2018 collections, respectively. Part of the latter, are these two Chimney sweater iterations, which renders a new approach to the practice.

Stockpiled vertically chimney style, each pullover spotlights contrasting sections, each with its own color, print, and identity, creating a truly unique, one-of-a-kind item. Aside from solid tones, we see such prints, as tartan, leopard and check patterns. Each half-zip sweater retails for a price of $1,150 USD and can be found now at SSENSE.

In case you missed it, BEAMS Couture transformed Ziploc bags into customized accessories.
