pre-fall 2009: balenciaga.

collections Uncategorized

at balenciaga, nicolas ghesquiere is back to making clothes for real people for pre-fall, mixing pieces from the higher-end edition line with the lower price point capsule collections. he also brought back some balenciaga “staples,” like tweed suits, fur cuffs, skinny pants, and draped silk skirts. while the pants looks were decidedly more modern, the skirt and dress looks had a more vintage feel, with mid-calf hems and looser silhouettes. could the fall collection signal a trip back in time? knowing nicolas, even if it is, it’s always mixed with a hint of futurism.
