The source | The making of the corset inspired by Cardi B’s Balenciaga sneakers
When stylist Kollin Carter was tasked by client Cardi B to prepare an outfit for the 30th anniversary of her husband Offset’s Sneaker Ball, but she didn’t want to wear sneakers, she had to wear heels. Stylist Kollin carter and his team has given a whole new meaning to what it means to be a sneakerhead! To follow the theme of the party, rapper Bodak Yellow wore green and white Balenciaga sneakers but not on her feet. Instead, she transformed the sneakers into a sexy corset top that she teamed with black leggings and green heels. Taking Cardi’s love for Balenciaga to a whole new level, Kollin explains the process in an Instagram post he shared with his followers with a caption that read:
What do you do when your client wants to wear heels to the @offsetyrn sneaker themed birthday party? Got 10 @balenciaga sneakers and the @friskmegood genius flies to LA to deconstruct them in a corset and @fashionbyreyortiz deconstruct a few pairs in a bra. Thank you both for being open to collaboration on this subject! Dressed in high waisted leggings @wolfard_studios and strappy sandal @femme_la. #styledbykollincarter
Black fashion designer Cierra boyd deconstructed Balenciaga sneakers to create this custom corset for Cardi who also created similar looks for Chinese Kitty and Big OG Dreez. Balenciaga Bardi never disappoints.
