Gucci x Balenciaga Features Hybrid Creations From Two Luxury Fashion Houses

A range of hybrid creations that combine the codes of Balenciaga and Gucci.

Two titans of the luxury fashion world have formed a hybrid universe where Gucci’s Alessandro Michele has ‘hacked’ Balenciaga.

The landmark collaboration named ‘The Hacker Project’ features classic silhouettes and signature styles from each of the Kering-owned stablemates which have been reimagined across a range of bags, accessories, shoes and jackets.

Exploring ideas of authenticity and appropriation, Gucci and Balenciaga motifs merge to create new interpretations of signature pieces.

It’s a heavy spreading of logos throughout the co-branded collection with Gucci’s GG also getting turned into a double B. The remixed mash-up of monograms and prints includes Gucci’s signature GG monogram and flora print overlaid with Balenciaga’s famous sans-serif logo.

With each house selling items more commonly associated with the other, here’s a look at some of the best pieces from Gucci and Balenciaga’s ‘The Hacker Project’.
