This, I’m certain, will be one of the most talked – about fashion shows this season! Balenciaga Spring Summer 2012 was mind blowing and it got everyone standing throughout the show!
(wink) and you know they did not got up in enthusiasm. And no, it was not because of the exquisite designs Nicolas Ghesquiere delivered for Balenciaga this time around. It was because the benches were crushing! Yep, yes! You heard that right – they were asked politely to lift their fashionable derrieres (and by “they” I understand the likes of Anna Wintour, Mario Testino, Salma Hayek with mega rich Pinault husband and so forth – not an easy crowd to please as it is! You can see them all in the video right after the jump).
Other than the collapsing benches, Nicolas Ghesquiere’s Balenciaga show took on another trend direction: looking back and rethinking with a present sprit. It will take me a while to get used to the collection and to paint it summery, but I have no doubts about its success. Do you? (click through to see my selection, the entire collection here)
