Balenciaga was dragged across the internet when the fashion brand released a campaign featuring young girls holding teddy bears wearing bondage gear and standing on top of court papers from a landmark Supreme Court case that focused on child pornography. The brand apologized for the images and pulled the campaign from the internet, but there are many more disturbing revelations of the brand and its long history with content that features child sex abuse and pedophilia. There is even more information coming out showing how depraved Balenciaga's roots are. It's parent company, Kering, is run by a man named François-Henri Pinault, who is married to Salma Hayek, and he owns an auction website that sells disgusting "art" of young children in sexual situations.
CEO of Balenciaga's Parent Company Owns Site That Sells Child Sex Mannequins with Erect Penises on Their Face
It was revealed that Balenciaga is associated with various people who seem to have an obsession with art that depicts pedophilia and even cannibalism. Balenciaga stylist Lotta Volkova has posted many photos on her Instagram of children in distressing, sexual, or even violent situations and she's close friends with Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia, who once told Vice that he and Lotta "grew up on child pornography."
The plot only thickens when you look at Balenciaga's parent company, Kering, which also owns Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, and more. Kering's CEO is billionaire François-Henri Pinault, who owns the famous Christie's auction house. The website features many different types of art, including a series of art pieces by brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman. This series includes child sex mannequins that are extremely disturbing.
One piece of art, which costs $140,000, is called F*ck Face. It's a male toddler with an erect penis in place of his nose and an anus in place of his mouth. The piece of art shows the boy walking with a large brown t-shirt on and purple sneakers. Another piece of art with the same title F*ck Face shows an adolescent girl standing completely naked with the same genitalia in place of her nose and mouth. She's wearing nothing but a pair of black sneakers.
There's another piece of art called Zygotic that shows 5 naked girls who look to be preteens; their bodies are connected and they share legs and arms. They have long, wavy brown hair and are wearing nothing but black sneakers.
Yet another disturbing image shows a young child with two heads, and their faces are joined by what appears to be a vagina. It's titled Two Faced C*nt and it sold for more than $111,000. There are many other pieces of art by the Chapman brothers that show severed body parts, blood, and gore.
The images are incredibly disturbing and hint at pedophilia and child sex abuse. Social media influencers have been sharing these photos and videos across various platforms to expose the deep roots of occultism and pedophilia in the fashion world and Hollywood. Hardly any celebrities have spoken out about these revelations. Kim Kardashian released a milquetoast statement expressing her disappointment with the Balenciaga campaign but ended it by saying that she hasn't decided yet if she wants to cut ties with the brand. Celebrities are all too quick to speak up about various social justice issues that affect marginalized groups of people, but they don't seem to care very much about the exploitation of innocent children.
