Described by Christian Dior as 'The master of us all,' Cristobal Balenciaga founded his Parisian fashion house, Balenciaga in 1918. A skilled and exacting couturier, he soon became known for his feminine designs and innovative silhouettes. Now under the creative eye of Alexander Wang, Balenciaga's collections fuse the contemporary with the timeless. When it comes to the label's wedges, think ultra-modern styles with a sleek and sophisticated glamor. Reinventing mules and Chelsea boots with a sharp wedge and architectural shape and giving elegant strappy wedges added edge with modern detailing, these are classic examples of Balenciaga under Alexander Wang's reign.
