What was the Balenciaga children’s campaign controversy about?

In November 2022, a Balenciaga campaign showing children posing with teddy bears dressed in bondage outfits sparked much controversy with both the brand and its creator, Demna Gvasalia.

Then, many accused the brand and its creator of condoning pedophilia and child exploitation.

Shortly after, Balenciaga apologized for its controversial campaign for children.

In a released statement, the luxury brand wrote: “We strongly condemn child abuse; we never intended to include it in the story. »

The fashion brand added: “Our teddy bear bags and gift collection should not have been displayed with children. »

The statement continued: “This is a poor choice on the part of Balenciaga, combined with our failure to evaluate and validate the images. The responsibility lies solely with Balenciaga.”

The brand concluded: “We want to learn from our mistakes and identify ways we can contribute. Balenciaga reiterates its sincere apologies for the offense we have caused and apologizes to the talents and partners.
