Gucci x Balenciaga Collab – The Hacker Project – Best Guccified Balenciagas

The Gucci x Balenciaga collaboration, cleverly named The Hacker Project was one of the most anticipated collaborations of the year. Part of the promotion for the new collection included “vandalising” Balenciaga stores with the Gucci name and vice vgucci x balenciaga storeersa – see the picture from @chloe_f_s on Instagram. Alessandro Michele has done an amazing job in reviving Gucci’s name and bringing the luxury fashion house back to its former glory. Under him, Gucci is yet again trying something bold – a collaboration collection with Balenciaga. The collab doesn’t exactly come out of thin air, as both brands are owned by Kering – a french luxury corporation that owns among others Saint Laurent, Bottega and McQueen. The collection IS over the top. You want logos, you’ve got logos! You want glitzy costume jewelry? You’ve got it!

Gucci x Balenciaga collab feels over the top, bold and creative and we’d love to get a piece of history.  Wihout further ado, here are our favorite pieces from the Hacker Collection – from the Gucci side (Guccified Balenciaga pieces)

The Balenciaga Neo bag is a fun mix between the brands City Line and the Hourglass Line and in the Hacker collection it features the GG logo, the signature Gucci Canvas and brown leather trimmings.

The Triple S has single handedly brought back the chunky sneakers. Ok, that might be an exaggeration, but it’s fair to say that the Balenciaga Triple S is one of the most popular designer sneaker – now combined with the pretty Gucci flowers or the GG logos.
