The well-known Spanish clothing brand Balenciaga , founded by the designer Cristóbal Balenciaga, is making waves once again on social networks. This time one of his most recent designs has been cataloged by Internet users as 'fashion for zombies'.
In its new collection of jackets, the luxury fashion house opted to introduce worn and torn garments on purpose. Trend that seems that it was not to the liking of Internet users.

On the brand's website you can find a pullover sweater made in Italy that, in addition to its controversial appearance, costs the high figure of 1,150 euros.
According to the product's detail sheet, it was made from 100 percent virgin wool and is designed in 'Fair Isle', a type of print common to knitted jumpsuits.
The opinion of several users on Twitter gave no respite, because for some it is an "excessive price for such an unpleasant garment."
Despite the jokes and negative comments, the bag was a success in sales, because, according to 'El Universal', some colors and sizes of the design are no longer available.
Although the style of the divers caused a sensation, this luxury clothing brand was also the subject of a similar controversy a few months ago. For the spring-summer 2022 collection, Balenciaga collaborated with the renowned shoe brand Crocs . The designs caught the attention of millions of Internet users for the unusual styles that were about to be launched on the market, since they were heels style clogs with stiletto heels that merge with the classic style of crocs. Even so, Balenciaga has been a benchmark for fashion for years and often surprises the public when it launches new collections, which aim to innovate and attract the attention of millions of people around the world although, on some occasions, they are unconventional styles.
