Last year, Demna Gvasalia announced that he wanted to expand Balenciaga's menswear lines and that the brand will stage co-ed shows moving forward. Many expected the first show to fall within Men's Paris Fashion Week however the Kering-owned brand was a notable absentee on this week’s runways. 

Gvsalia is still making headlines though, thank to the release of a new Pre-Fall '18 collection, the brand's first ever for men. 

Held at its Parisian showroom, the collection was showcased on a row of giant screens. The collection saw a blend of oversized menswear inspired by the Spring/Summer '18 creations merged with fun, feminine silhouettes from the womenswear show. 

According to WWD, Balenciaga said in a statement:  “The two-way conversation between the ordinary and the extraordinary, between fashion and utility, emphasises the Balenciaga priority of putting the choice in the hands of the personality of the wearer.”
