Balenciaga Objets Couture Figurines and Candle
Balenciaga’s 51st haute couture show now marked not just Demna’s second couture collection for the house, but a fusion of fashion history and modernity. With the likes of Naomi Campbell, Kim Kardashian, Nicole Kidman, Dua Lipa and more on the catwalk, Denma’s vision reimagined classic Balenciaga looks with paneling with futuristic vigour. But alongside these imaginative looks and the opening of the Balenciaga couture boutique, which took place on the same day as the show, the luxury house unveiled porcelain figurines and a candle from its line of objects.
The limited-edition handcrafted porcelain figurines feature Aki Nummela and Minttu Vesala in their respective looks from Balenciaga’s Fall 2021 Couture collection. Manufactured by the Munich-based Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory, the Entity is one of the few remaining handcrafted porcelain manufacturers in the world. With great attention to detail, the figures mirror their real life counterparts, from clothes to poses.
The next line of objects is a minimalist candle presented in a mirror-polished silver round box. With notes of burnt incense, old paper, tobacco smoke, tanned leather, aged wool, oak and more, the aroma channels Balenciaga’s Couture heritage and subsequent re-emergence. In addition, the rechargeable candle is available in two sizes.
The limited-edition porcelain couture figurines and the candle are available for purchase now from Balenciaga’s Couture boutique located at 10 avenue George V in Paris.
In addition, an exhibition on the vintage archives of NIGO should be presented this year.
