Nov 29 -Balenciaga campaign featured book by artist whose works include castrated toddlers
 

 
In Balenciaga's Spring '23 campaign, a book showcasing the artist Michael Borremans is in the background

Borremans is a Belgian painter whose work includes a 2017 series of images depicting nekkid toddlers

The series is titled Fire From The Sun and shows young children with blood-soaked skin and some castrated

It is the third disturbing component of a Balenciaga photoshoot to draw criticism this week

The brand took responsibility for the first - and an entire holiday ad campaign which featured BDSM teddy bears and child models

It however blamed the second - the inclusion of a print out of a SCOTUS ruling on child p0rn - on production company North Six

More photographs from an axed Balenciaga campaign are being questioned today over the prominence of a book which celebrates a Belgian artist whose work includes depictions of castrated toddlers.

Two photos from the brand's now canceled Spring '23 ad campaign feature French actress Isabelle Huppert posing in a Manhattan office with a stack of books behind her.

Among the books is one that celebrates the Belgian painter Michael Borremans. Borremans' work is varied but frequently features children. His 2017/2018 series, Fire from the Sun, shows a group of toddlers, some of them with blood staining their skin, in sinister composition.

In some of the images, the toddlers appear castrated.

Balenciaga has not commented on the Borremans book or how it made it into its Spring '23 campaign.

There are other distinct similarities between Borremans' work and some of Balenciaga's past designs - namely Kim's look at the 2021 Met Gala, where she appeared with black fabric covering her face.

The images which feature the book of his work were swiftly pulled from the fashion brand's website this week after the BDSM teddy bears controversy.

Those images showed young child models holding the bears - which are in fact fluffy handbags - posing around glassware.

In a statement on Monday, the brand apologized for the bears campaign again, and took full responsibility of it.

'We would like to address the controversies surrounding our recent ad campaigns. We strongly condemn child abuse; it was never our intent to include it in our narrative.

'The two separate ad campaigns in questions reflect a series of grievous errors for which Balenciaga takes responsibility.

'The first campaign, the gift collection campaign, featured children with plush bear bags dressed in what some have labelled BDMS-inspired outfits. Our plush bear bags and the gift collection should not have been featured with children.

Balenciaga's latest statement acknowledges the teddy bears scandal, which it takes responsibility for, and the SCOTUS child pr0n ruling being included in another photo but it makes no mention of the Borremans book

'This was a wrong choice by Balenciaga, combined with our failure in a*sessing and validating images. The responsibility for this lies with Balenciaga alone,' it said.

But the fashion house claims another controversial prop that made its way onto the set - a printout of a SCOTUS ruling on child pr0n - was the fault of design production company North Six.

'The second, separate campaign for Spring 2023, which was meant to replicate a business office environment, included a photo with a page in the background from a supreme court ruling which confirms as illegal and not protected by freedom of speech the promotion of child pr0nography.

'All the items included in this shooting were provided by third parties that confirmed in writing that these props were fake office documents.

They turned out to be real legal papers most likely coming from the filming of a television drama.

'The inclusion of these unapproved documents was the result of reckless negligence for which Balenciaga has filed a complaint.

'We take full accountability for our lack of oversight and control of the documents in the background and we could have done things differently.'

Balenciaga's attorneys filed a notice of summons against North Six and set designer Nicholas Des Jardins last week, alleging they are responsible.

Des Jardins' agent said he is being made out to be a scapegoat, and that multiple Balenciaga staffers were on-set at the time of the shoot.

Others in the fashion industry agree.

Des Jardins' agent said he is being made out to be a scapegoat, and that multiple Balenciaga staffers were on-set at the time of the shoot.

Others in the fashion industry agree.

1 Granary, which was founded by Central Saint Martins students to represent talent in the fashion industry, condemned Balenciaga's response.

'Accountability only when successful - that seems to be the mantra of Balenciaga this week.

They would like us to believe that Demna is the all-seeing god-like genius who personally makes every creative decision in the house... yet, when a campaign gets rightly cancelled, those outside collaborators are suddenly to blame.

'Real leaders take responsibility. For their team's mistakes and their own,' they said.

In the filing, Balenciaga's lawyers blame the studio - which it has used multiple times in the past - for the controversy, making no mention of the bears controversy from earlier in the week.

'As a result of Defendants' misconduct, members of the public, including the news media, have falsely and horrifically a*sociated Balenciaga with the repulsive and deeply disturbing subject of the court decision,' court documents reveal.

'Defendants are liable to Balenciaga for all harm resulting from this false a*sociation.'

The brand is now being boycotted by a handful of celebrity clients.

Kim Kardashian, its prolific ambassador who is friends with creative director Demna Gvasalia, said she was 'disgusted' with the imagery and was 're-evaluating' her relationship with the brand.

Demna has not issued a personal comments since the controversy erupted.

It’s funny kanye triggered all this fake out rage after spending 4 mil on their clothes before asking to be apart of their sh*t

Only to play moral Jesus man once more after they separated from him after coming at all the fashion heads (they are a fashion brand owned by said fashion heads) coupled with the anti semite sh*t making it the last straw

Kids holding bondage themed stuffed animals was white ppl tryna be edgy

But the tidal wave of misinformation/smut followed by common ppl blindly parroting something they read on Twitter seems very republican

But what do I know ?

Who’s Kanye chillin with these days?

You judge a man by the company they keep.

Look up what Nick Fuentes and Milo stand for politically… That’s Ye‘s identity in 2022.

Pressure? Balenciaga probably lowkey loving this attention
They've probably seen a huge spike in their searches recently.

yeah, I'm sure they're lose with the sh*t they validate before it gets out there... Who the fk owns that book for it to be on the set? Why's it the only readable thing in the picture? What's the intention if it were strategically put there??

A bunch of questions that'll never be answered

Anyways, I can't afford it, so I should ignore it according to some

Again...its the art director.

He's that gatekeeper to the creative direction. Everything goes thru him.
