Balenciaga creative director Demna’s passion for accessories is certainly nothing new.
In fact, since a couple of days, the Balenciaga Objects collection has been available, a series of home accessories, perfumes, petwear, objects of his daily life and custom-made furniture, Christmas decorations. as well as much more, expanding the offerings of the maison owned by the Kering group.
A multitude of objects, some created in collaboration with designer Tejo Remy while others with Italian company Ginori 1735, that put Balenciaga overwhelmingly on the home design map, thanks in part to a campaign shot by Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti called “Balenciaga Gift Shop”.
For this campaign Galimberti drew on work he has been doing for nearly 15 years, that of photographing people surrounded by their things that represent “sweeping portraits of everyday eccentricities”. Specifically, the photographer originally from Val di Chiana, Tuscany, decided to decline for Balenciaga his “Toy Stories” project, which consists of photographing children amidst their toys, all of which are nevertheless well-organized.
“Balenciaga Gift Shop” in fact features beautiful children themselves, in what could be their bedrooms, surrounded by all the Objects from the collection.
