Balenciaga continues on from its recently-released Spring/Summer 2020 campaign with a new video highlighting its upcoming seasonal offerings.

The Demna Gvasalia-helmed label has taken to the newsroom for its campaign video, delivering an eerie, esoteric production that sees models sporting the latest Balenciaga garments while reporting on obscure headlines. In a show dubbed “BLNCG Live,” models can be seen mouthing soundless and unfathomable words while wearing Balenciaga’s retro-futuristic sunglasses, as well as a number of key sportswear-indebted and tailoring-heavy looks.

In “BLNCG Live,” B-roll footage of pedestrians on the street show more of Balenciaga SS20 offerings, showcasing the Hello Kitty bag and plenty of formal footwear options. The footage is put together in a four-minute-long production that is backed by an electronic tune by Wolf Eyes, coming together to comment on climate change and the future of politics in a dystopian Balenciaga-clad future.

Watch Balenciaga’s SS20 campaign video above, and shop the collection at the house’s boutiques on Balenciaga’s website now.

In other news, Aimé Leon Dore has previewed its SS20 collection in its latest campaign.
