Balenciaga's New Book Takes You Behind the Scenes of the Winter 18 Runway Show

A well-curated stack of books on a coffee table is just as important as mastering how to properly place framed art pieces on your wall. Take a look at a fashion lover's coffee table, and you might see books like Dior: The Art of Color or Chanel: Collections and Creations, essential readings that celebrate the history and influence of some of fashion's most revered houses. Now, Balenciaga and the brand's artistic director, Demna Gvasalia, are releasing a coffee table book that centers on the house's Winter '18 show.

Aptly titled Balenciaga: Winter 18, the book offers readers an exclusive look at never-before seen images of the behind-the-scenes process of the Balenciaga show, from sketches to garment fittings and runway rehearsals. To match the vibrant, striking colors that appeared on the Balenciaga Fall '18 show, Johnny Dufort and Pierre Ange Carlotti, the only two photographers allowed access backstage at the show, shot the glossy images in the book, which were carefully printed with swipes of bright neon tones, including lime green and pink.

“With this show in particular, even backstage looked like a story,” Gvasalia said in a statement. “I realized that every show I do from now on for Balenciaga is cinematographic in terms of concept and setup, and each of them I’d like to accompany with some memorabilia, something that actually puts you into that show and the process behind it.”

"A show is an experience and this book is a tool for remembering it,” he added. The collectible can be all yours on November 7 on balenciaga.com before it releases on rizzoliusa.com in February 2019.
