his last one for the brand according to WWD. According to the reports, the Wang era at the helm of the Parisian house has been a profitable one for Kering, but at the same time, sources also say that Wang has been privately looking for investors to take his own brand onto another level.
Personally, I hope the upcoming changes are true as Wang, in my opinion, has never been the right person for Balenciaga - neither based on his overrated talent, attitude nor the kind of crowd he was praised by. So I am keeping my fingers crossed... Not because I have any negative feeling about the designer, but simply because I don't think he suits this kind of fashion house or truly understands its status and legacy.
