Balenciaga Releases New Objects: The Laser Cube
Always one to do something out of the ordinary - Balenciaga releases a new object and this time it's the laser cube. To be considered as more of something along the lines of a "fashion sculpture", the laser cube features a laser-etched 3D image of the Balenciaga sneaker, rendered to thousands of intricate points in detail. Giving off the effect of a holographic shoe suspended midway in glass, the Balenciaga Laser Cube will fall into the timeless category of Balenciaga Objects and will come in limited editions as a collectible. The Balenciaga Laser Cube is available now at Balenciaga Westfield Sydney and Collins Street Melbourne.
