For its Spring/Summer 2018 luxe photoshoot, Spanish fashion house Balenciaga heads in a realistically creative direction. The models are photographed in clashing arrangements, sporting red and yellow checkered patterns on illustrated mountain scenery tights and exaggerated bling accessories.

During the Balenciaga luxe photoshoot, the barrier between model and photographer seems painfully evident. A sense of a desperate yearning for anonymity is created, as the subjects are promptly escorted by their bodyguards and are encouraged to hide their faces behind luxurious handbags.

The paparazzi-inspired photography series is derived from a similarly photoshoot of Kim Kardashian for the YEEZY Season Six first looks. This makes it evident how the celebrity duo has begun impacting luxurious brands in its approach to seasonal lookbooks.
