Balenciaga releases a line of t-shirts and sweatshirts based on a runway series of Egypt-themed, punky 80's and 90's style prints

Balenciaga, known for the use of thick materials to create large forms, adds a youthful element to their runway by impressing images on some high-tailoring pret a port. They then took those designs and made it accessible by selling them on t-shirts and sweatshirts on their website.

The surprise is that they are inspired by Egypt, with pyramid themes, but have very 80's t-shirt look: neon colours, favouring blues and pinks.

The iconic style of Balenciaga has been given a strong street edge, reminiscent of the punk era, including chains and generally a lot of metal. Their newest collection, Spring/Summer 2012/2013 is much more conformitory, but elements of their short romance with punk crops up comfortably mingling with the style of the season.
