Their vision is demonstated clearly in Balenciaga sunglasses as they face a growing popularity in the current fashion industry.
Balenciaga Sunglasses - The History of the Brand
Balenciaga was founded by the Spanish designer Cristóbal Balenciaga in San Sebastian, Spain. However, the high-fashion brand relocated to France, from the Basque Country, and opened a boutique store in Paris in 1937 (as a result of the Spanish Civil War). Throughout this time, Balenciaga used sophisticated, clean-cut lines in the post-war era that was a welcomed devastation from Christian Dior’s haute-couture, hourglass, and feminine shapes.
Balenciaga was acquired by Kering [a French-based multinational corporation specialising in luxury goods) in 2001. The group also house Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, Montblanc, Chloe, Bottega Veneta and Alexander McQueen.
