Balenciaga has apologised for an ad campaign that invited brutal backlash

Luxury fashion house Balenciaga has apologised for two controversial ad campaigns while suing the production company behind one of them. Balenciaga is seeking at least $25 million in damages from production company North Six, Inc., set designer Nicholas Des Jardins and his company, reports CNN.

North Six and Des Jardins were hired to develop and produce the label’s Spring 2023 campaign.


In one of the pictures showcasing a Balenciaga handbag, eagle-eyed internet users noticed a 2008 US Supreme Court ruling on child pornography in the background.


The child pornography document in the Balenciaga Spring 2023 campaign might have gone unnoticed had it not been for another ad campaign that landed the fashion house in hot water earlier this month.
