The France international was chosen to model for the luxury fashion house during Demna Gvasalia’s second couture show on Wednesday, after attending numerous fashion shows during Paris Fashion Week last month.

On the runway with him were actress Nicole Kidman, American socialite Kim Kardashian, and singer Dua Lipa.

To commemorate one of the most anticipated events on the fashion calendar, Balenciaga’s Instagram page posted a presentation of the 51st Couture Collection.

Camavinga isn’t the only footballer who has walked the runway. Former Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin made an unexpected appearance at Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton show in Paris in 2019.

Bellerin stated that he was honored to be a part of the event.

“I’d been asked before but I didn’t think it was the right time then and when I got the news that Virgil wanted me to walk for his Louis Vuitton show it was a no brainer,” the Spaniard told Vogue.

“I was on holidays but I needed to go regardless. I’m very happy [to have walked] – it felt really good.”

Balenciaga released their own ‘Soccer Sneakers’ [their words not mine] in 2020, and they slapped a hefty £595 price tag on the leather-free boots.

The ‘sneakers’ have been reworked for everyday wear rather than athletic activities, with the company’s famous branding visible on a retro foldable tongue.

Kieran Brown, a YouTuber, put the Balenciaga boots through a series of tests on his channel.

Balenciaga also released their own £612 football jersey made from mid-weight premium cotton and a stand collar a few months earlier to help “further blur the line between sportswear and streetwear-indebted luxury.”

The collection made its debut during Paris Fashion Week.

For the 35-year-old Luka Modric, who in May agreed to a one-year deal to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real sees Camavinga as a potential long-term replacement.
