Having already developed a fast following with their “Egypotfunk” womenswear collection, Balenciaga are now building on their men’s designs with their latest Egyptian inspired sweater.

The new sweatshirt comes in a simple design with a crew-cut neck and made in a black cotton, unlike the more adventurous women’s neoprene material and exaggerated sleeves. The imagery on the front shows a mash up of Egyptian culture with the main image being of a pharoah with pyramids in the background, but is then juxtaposed with the words ‘join a weird trip’ written in a typeface made famous by heavy metal band Iron Maiden.

The sweater is available through Mr. Porter and retails for a pricey £235/$358.
