As a longtime partner, Balenciaga is fundamental to Département féminin. Bold and elegant, the clothing redesigned by Nicolas Ghesquière, Creative Director of the studio since 1997, has found its natural place within the store. From the classic cuts and Éditions inherited from Cristobal Balenciaga to adding experimental models with slender and architectural silhouettes, it is this unremitting risk-taking that has captivated Départment féminin. The Balenciaga woman is ahead or her time, never succumbing to trends, between self-possession and blithe. She's right at home here.
