“Is creative director of Balenciaga Demna Gvasalia influenced by Steve Jobs? Or was Steve a trend leader?”
Steve Jobs, the genius behind the revolutionary technologies he pioneered at Apple Inc, was also known for his uniform fashion sense. Every day and at every official meeting while working at Apple, Jobs would be seen seen wearing a black turtle neck, blue jeans and a pair of chunky trainers. The chunky trainers Jobs chose were the New Balance 990.
Is creative director of Balenciaga Demna Gvasalia influenced by Steve Jobs? Or was Steve a trend leader? For the AW17 season, the chunky trainers are back in the trend. Looking at Balenciaga’s AW17 collection, the oversized straight cut silhouette outfits with chunky trainers were the most eye catching of all styles and it didn’t take long for the chunky trainers ‘Triple S’ to catch the world’s attention.
Balenciaga’s ‘Triple S’ trainers are inspired by a number of sports trainers which include running shoes, basketball trainers and tracking shoes. ‘Triple S’ trainers feature a triple-stacked sole with pre-distressed effects all over the trainers.
Don’t be disappointed if you didn’t manage to grab a hold of the ‘Triple S’. Other recommendations worthy of your attentions are Raf Simons’ Ozweego trainers, Kanye’s Yeezy Boost 700 and Vetements’ collaboration trainers with Reebok.
