Karl Lagerfeld has given his seal of approval on the hiring of Balenciaga’s new designer, Alexander Wang. He tells website ModMods in an email, “As the impression we have had so far is that Mr. Pinault [CEO of PPR, which owns Balenciaga] very much wants to ‘expand’ this area of business, I believe that Alexander Wang is the best man for the job.
