2014 S/S Balenciaga Black Leather Knot Headband


Balenciaga is revered as one of the masters of form. From his famous bubble dress or his envelope dress, Balenciaga has experimented turning impossible shapes into dresses. Then creative director Alexander Wang designed the Spring 2014 collection to step away from a literal interpretation of classic Balenciaga design history, Wang nonetheless incorporated the subtle use of sculptural volume throughout the collection.

This black leather headpiece is comprised of a simple ring band with a tubular bow-like knot. While the garments in the Spring 2014 collection played with angular volume, this headband unites the geometric silhouettes with the curvilinear floral prints and patterns on the garments through organic lines. In particular, this headpiece was seen on the Paris runway that season. Worn with the knot to the back, the headpiece conveys a casual yet dress add-on to elevate a clean look. Worn with the knot to the side, a classic cocktail is all that is needed to create a 21st century flapper vibe.

Size: XS


Circumference 20 inches

The leather is smooth and supple. Resembling a chic fascinator hat, this headpiece pays homage not only to the founding designer but also to designers such as Schiaparelli who was noted for her ironic surrealist accessories. This headpiece is in excellent condition and due its size would fit best on a smaller sized head. High-quality pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
