The sincerest form of flattery.

Considering many of Vetements’ releases are based on parody, we’re not surprised to hear that someone is imitating the French streetwear brand.

A label by the name of Balements has caught the world’s attention. And its name and designs are a fusion Balenciaga and Vetements.

Balements has been around since May this year, but started gaining hype after it tapped a group of Italian skateboarders to sport its designs at Milan Fashion Week. Skaters were seen in red hoodies which reflected Balenciaga’s FW17 Bernie Sanders-inspired pieces. 

The hoodie isn’t available for purchase as yet, so you’ll want to keep an eye on the brand’s website if you’re keen to get your hands on one.
