Balenciaga FW19 Campaign Stars Real-Life Parisian Couples

First seen in March, Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2019 is just now trickling out to stores. The seasonal range is loaded with house staples, from broad-shouldered coats to washed-out denim, modeled in the campaign imagery by actual French couples.

In selecting its street-cast models, Balenciaga strove to represent the “reality of Paris today,” according to the press release, choosing couples connected by very clear chemistry. Similarly, locations were scouted based on their tendency to inspire (authentic or cliché) romance.

Sporting square-toed boots and slouchy red suits, the duos all offer a distinct take on Balenciaga’s key looks, though there aren’t any Triple S in sight. Instead, enormous shirting co-mingles with boxy hoodies and solid color parkas mesh with baggy jeans. The resulting looks portray an authentic approach to reimagining the brand’s progressive goods, uniting comfortable accessibility with an elevated whimsy.

The new collection is currently arriving on Balenciaga’s site and stockists like SSENSE.

JEFFREY FASHION CARES ATLANTA CELEBRATES 27 YEARS THIS AUGUST 2019

Jeffrey-Fashion-Cares

Atlanta’s most philanthropic and fashionable affair, Jeffrey Fashion Cares, is set to celebrate 27 stylish years on Monday, August 26, 2019 at 7 p.m. The annual event, which has become a mainstay on Atlanta’s social circuit, is founded by acclaimed retailer and arbiter of style, Jeffrey Kalinsky, who recently expanded his Atlanta store in Phipps Plaza and is now offering both men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, accessories and jewelry.  What is aways an unforgettable evening, Jeffrey Fashion Cares will kick off with a cocktail reception and dynamic silent auction followed by a high-energy live auction.  The evening’s pièce de résistance, a runway show featuring Kalinsky’s style selections from high-end designers, once again promises to dazzle with looks from Celine, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Dries Van Noten, Sacai, Saint Laurent Paris, Balenciaga, Valentino, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik. The 2019 event will be held at Phipps Plaza and benefit Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF), and the Medical University of South Carolina.


New this year, Marsha Archer, CEO and President of M Squared Public Relations, joins veteran co-chairs Lila Hertz and Louise Sams to continue Kalinksy’s mission to raise as much funds and awareness for the event’s beneficiaries as possible.  Selling out year after year, guests will slip into a completely transformed and private environment in the Monarch Court at Phipps Plaza located in the heart of Buckhead.  Last year’s event raised nearly $625,000 for the organizations, and in its history, Jeffrey Fashion Cares has grown into one of the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country. Sponsor and patron packages are currently available. A limited number of single seat tickets will be on sale beginning July 15, 2019.  For more information, visit jeffreyfashioncares.com.
