fall prêt-à-porter, paris: balenciaga
by Jeremy Danté
nicolas ghesquière continues to bring the house of balenciaga to the forefront of fashion foward design, delivering complex concepts & jaw dropping glamour. while last season seen the balenciaga label playing with the big boys, channeling masculine edge & furthering the trend of androgyny. this season, those same concepts are focused on while design lines become elongated, print swirled throughout & innovative design was seen on the collections coats. from multi-colored collars to clean combinations of leather, wool & fishnet- the collection manages to introduce a gang of design while balancing all details creatively & imaginatively. as few models walked the runway with colored uni-brows- the FW11 collection really touched on another level of fashion design that use intricate details as well as new aged minimalism. a beautiful collection, though i hope a fitting campaign image comes of this. stunning design, incredibly inspiring- balenciaga is the illest.
