Balenciaga Feel The Bern At FW17 Show

~Statement piece~.

Vetements guy Demna Gvasalia just showed his second Balenciagia menswear collection and it was another doozy. Demna got down to business for FW17 with cozy exaggerated takes on classic suiting and a shout out to the one and only Bernie Sanders.

Ever a fan of appropriation, Demna redesigned Bernie's campaign logo, swapping out Bernie 2016 for Balenciaga 2017. That's a political party we can get behind.

"Look, I know I use this phrase a lot, but this feels very 'wealthiest one-tenth of one percent' to me," was just one of Bernie's priceless reactions acquired by The Cut.

The show also featured dope rain jackets, diverse casting and some baller business casual looks. Check out the whole squad below.
