Poking fun at the current state of politics.

By Balthazar Malevolent


Known for its playful take on fashion, with "Gvasalia For President" hat, Vetements is now looking to deliver their thoughts on the current state of American politics.

Vetements' Gvasalia for President cap.

Poking fun at current and prospective presidential candidates, Zurich-based company decorated a black six-panel hat in contrasting white with "GVASALIA FOR PRESIDENT", undoubtedly suggesting Vetements' founder and designer Demna Gvasalia for the presidency of something. A classic curved brim and adjustable back snap fastening serves to round out the design of the accessory. Vetements' Gvasalia For President hat is being priced at $380 USD.

Demna Gvasalia is a Georgian fashion designer who is currently Balenciaga's artistic director, as well as Vetements' founder. Born in Georgia in 1981 to an orthodox Christian family in Georgia, Gvasalia fled at the age of 12, during the violent civil war in the region, and went on to live in Düsseldorf from 2001. Gvasalia has been studying international economics at Tbilisi State University for four years, and later attended the Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where he graduated with a Master of Fashion Design degree in 2006.

Gvasalia developed a unique style, as the size and popularity of his company, Vetements, increased. A lot of Gvasalia's style still stems from his initial aim to construct provocative fashion. Collections such as Fall/Winter 2017 featured archetypal-inspired fashion, diverging from the traditional haute couture process of radical renovation and the avant-garde look. Certain common trends include baggy, street-style jackets and loose-fitting clothes. At the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards Gvasalia received the Global Award for Vetements and Balenciaga. He also received the Style Awards 2018 award for Accessories Designer of the Year.

In other news, "Phlegethon", the new collection by Rick Owens – it is "one of the rivers in the inferno mentioned in Dante's Divine Comedy, not quite the core of hell but on the way there." The benefit of this simple two-panel broadcast, like seeing a black and white multi-station surveillance camera instead of a live stage display, showing a fitting Owens conducted at the Paris studio with the model Tyrone Dylan Susman is that the main action is on the clothes without any possible distraction, like the colored smoke from his Spring 2019 show at the Palais de Tokyo.
