This Thursday, Balenciaga will open its first dedicated men's store in Paris—a 650-square foot space designed in collaboration with Dominique-Gonzalez Foerster.
"It's definitely a concept made for men," Balenciaga's CEO Isabelle Guichot told WWD. "It's not a masculinization of the women's concept."
Balenciaga's men's collection is sold in over 150 locations around the world. The men's label has recently expanded to produce travel bags and luggage; a men's fragrance is in development for the future. Balenciaga also announced it will open locations in Las Vegas' CityCenter and in Beijing in the near future.
