The Balenciaga x Gucci collaboration was one of the biggest collaborations in the fashion world.
The creative director of Balenciaga worked alongside the creative director of the Italian fashion house, Gucci, Alessandro Michele in 2021 to create this fashion collaboration, entitled The Hacker Project.
The collection included classic Gucci and Balenciaga designs decorated with the other brand’s logo – such as the Balenciaga Neo Classic City tote decorated with the GG supreme fabric, as pictured above. This was a fantastic, one-of-a-kind collaboration that you really need in your wardrobe.
2. Balenciaga x Adidas

We loved the high-fashion-meets-streetwear collaboration between Balenciaga and Adidas. The Balenciaga x Adidas collaboration was launched in 2022, during the Balenciaga Resort runway show in New York City, and sold out very quickly!
The collaboration was comprised of a 33-piece collection that combined the chic silhouettes of Balenciaga with the sports brand’s classic stripe motif and Adidas logo.
The outerwear, bags, and tracksuits in this collection have a bold and striking look, but it was the sneakers that really stood out. Balenciaga is known for its stylish Triple S Sneakers which have been decorated with Adidas motifs in this collaboration.
3. Balenciaga x Crocs

One of the more unusual collaborations of recent years was Balenciaga’s collaboration with the footwear brand, Crocs.
This collab brought the practicality, durability, and ugly-chic style of Crocs rubber footwear with the super fashionable look of the Balenciaga brand.
The shoe collection ranges from sandals to heels to boots, all crafted from Croc’s durable leather with a trendy, chunky Balenciaga silhouette. These Balenciaga x Crocs Madame 80mm Mules look fantastic and are available in a whole range of different colors.
4. Balenciaga x Vibram

Vibram is a footwear brand known for its FiveFingers toe design, which is a key element in the footwear range created for the Balenciaga x Vibram collaboration.
This is another perhaps unexpected collaboration in the fashion world, but the shoes and boots from the collection have proved very popular, with even Rihanna wearing these Heeled Toe Booties.
The Booties have a calfskin leather upper and contoured, rubber sole with an 80mm heel to add a high-fashion element to these running-inspired shoes.
5. Balenciaga x Marvel

If you are a big Marvel fan then this recent Balenciaga collaboration is just perfect for you!
Balenciaga worked alongside Marvel to create a capsule collection that features an image of The Hulk on a variety of different clothes and accessories, including t-shirts, bags, dresses, and hoodies – like the one pictured above.
This Hoodie is crafted from 100% cotton for a super soft and cozy feel and then printed with the Hulk image on the front and the Balenciaga brand name embroidered on the back.
6. Balenciaga x The Simpsons
Get this on Bergdorf Goodman
In 2021, Balenciaga worked with the animators at The Simpsons to create a short film of The Simpsons in which the Simpsons family attend a Balenciaga fashion show – this film quickly went viral and only made the Balenciaga collection even more in demand.
In the next seasons, Balenciaga released a whole Simpson range of clothing that was decorated with The Simpsons family in Balenciaga clothes.
This Balenciaga x The Simpsons Graphic Wide Fit Hoodie is the perfect example; the characters really stand out against the white hoodie in their Balenciaga attire.
