collection images: balenciaga, pre-fall
by Jeremy Danté
transitioning from masculine aesthetics we seen for their SS11 collection, the balenciaga label redirects their creative vision to that of floral accents. colored fur, geometric color blocking, leather & metallics were all conceptualized for the collection, which sees a wide range of silhouettes. while the last three seasons of balenciaga have been much more futuristic, the concepts seen for the labels pre-fall set seem to be much more grounded & classic. the collection also includes a stunning set of handbags, leggings, heels & among the greatest elements of the collection, i love the coats. the crazed floral backdrop allows enough mental intrusion while not forcefully pushing florals. a clear direction, always an outstanding show of design & style. im greatly anticipating the balenciaga show in paris for FW11. but until then, this is the little taste we have to hold us over.
