Designed by a team under Alexander Wang’s direction, this compact men’s collection stuck to a palette of grays and black, a low-key presentation format and nods to the legacy of founder Cristóbal Balenciaga.

Cue rounded, dropped shoulders on overcoats, once again echoing the house’s famous egg shape, along with “Cracnil,” a crinkled faux leather the house developed in the Fifties, here used for toggle coats and tailored jackets.

Wang-esque touches included pixelated prints, origamilike folded panels on the front of a cotton shirt, and silver zippers flashing on sporty nylon tops, or looping around the lapels of a tubular evening coats.
