WINTER WARMERS: BALANCING BALENCIAGA VS KEEPING IT KENZO
By Tameika Lawrence, October 16th, 2012
It’s sweater season, and we’re not talking about your grandma’s knits. We’re talking about scene-stealing pullovers starring gaudy graphics, which have been spotted on countless fashion it girls since the weather turned cool. But the burgeoning trend is owing to two brands in particular: Balenciaga and Kenzo. Balenciaga’s Iconic Dog Sweater was the toast of every town that held a fashion week. While Kenzo’s logo Tiger Sweatshirt and Eiffel Tower Sweatshirt in bright colorways could not be missed. Whether you’re into panting german shepherds, roaring tigers or cityscapes, check out this season’s must-have winter warmers from Balenciaga and Kenzo which we paired with other popular pieces from the brands.
