Designer in Focus: Balenciaga Has Arrived at HOLLY!
It all started with a super secret meeting back in October…whispers, wining, dining, and invitation-only visits with one of the certified hottest brands on the street right now.
We promised you we had something exciting up our sleeves to start 2019 off in the right direction and we couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that HOLLY Eyewear has been selected to become the purveyor of Balenciaga in our Toronto business district.
That’s right, we’ve just given you one more reason to love shopping with us. If you’re coming to Yorkville to shop they most coveted designer labels - including Balenciaga - HOLLY Eyewear is the place to get it.
Next to Dover Street Market Bags? We’re the next retailer to get this heavily anticipated release! Which means you don’t need to envy those shoppers in Tokyo, Los Angeles, New York, London, Singapore and Beijing - you can get your own pair right here in The Six.
Balenciaga’s 2019 sunglass collection pulls the elements that you love about their apparel and footwear and executes them in brand new ways.
Key Trends for the 2019 Balenciaga Collection...
One of the first to establish this direction last year, Balenciaga’s leading the tagging trend again in 2019 by moving the logos we lusted over on their footwear and apparel to both their frames and their smokey, geometric lenses.
Logos on repeat come up in unexpected ways that are made for you to experience to enjoy - from shadowy screened impressions to hidden imprints on the inside of frames.

Super-reflective, mirrored lenses take centre stage in the Balenciaga collection. But it’s not just about the texture - blazingly incandescent colours keeping the look super futuristic and singular in a landscape of luxe brands that are taking a more familiar approach to the mirrored trend.
These are our hero! And not surprisingly, it’s Balenciaga’s hero too. We’d call them wrap-arounds but this pair of sunglasses ascends the idea to a completely different plane by creating the entire pair of reflective sunburst glass, held securely by an separated onyx frame so that you have full protection and visibility - with zero blind spots. Of course you can see out - but no-one can see into these glasses!
Yes - all of the Balenciaga’s new frames are bold - but that’s not quite what we mean here. This collection is all about colour - from one end of the spectrum to the other.
Stark, solid white, ultraviolet, cobalt blue, sunburst orange, hot pink, fiery red, and onyx black, colour this intense is rare - and they go in with no holds barred matching searingly bright frames with equally intense lenses creating a band of colour for every look.

The 2019 Balenciaga collection is a Millennial’s dream take on futurism, blending the throwback trends that have made Balenciaga the “must-haviest” Must-Have with a new sci-fi innovation that, we predict, makes every style a true PIECE.
We can’t wait for you to be one of the first to have them in Toronto.
