Balenciaga's Kitsch SS18 Campaign Parodies The Family Photos We'd Rather Forget
Read the best and worst Instagram reactions.
True to Demna Gvasalia's tongue-in-cheek style and penchant for ugly nostalgia, Balenciaga's upcoming spring/summer 2018 campaign parodies the kitsch family photographs we'd rather forget.
Balenciaga unveiled the shots in a series of Instagram posts; awkwardly staged, set against vintage studio backdrops and featuring oversized '80s and '90s-inspired clothing, the campaign is a portal back to simpler times.
Not everyone was a fan, with some calling out its similarity to thrift store style and one Instagram comment even calling for Gvasalia to be fired. Guess you can't please everyone! Check out the best and the worst Instagram reactions below.
