Despite its namesake, the Balenciaga x NASA Space Parka isn’t made for space. However, like China’s Lunar and Deep Space Exploration x McDonald’s China jacket, you do not need to be a member of the space agency, or an astronaut to own one.
Additionally, it will make you look like an astronaut (albeit only for the upper torso) which you always wanted to be without having an exemplary education and putting yourself through rigorous fitness regiment.
So, yeah, the Balenciaga x NASA Space Parka is probably as expensive as an astronaut suit by consumer’s standards. Anyhoo, the jacket is Balenciaga reinterpretation of the astronaut suit.
In addition to the Balenciaga x NASA Space Parka, the Balenciaga x NASA Space Parka, there is a bunch other fashion pieces, including apparels, bags, eyewear and more, in the Balenciaga x NASA Collection.
You may want to pick up the US$1,750 Space Backpack that looks like an astronaut pack if you are planning to buy the Balenciaga x NASA Space Parka. You know, for completeness sake.
