Balenciaga Fall 2014

Alexander Wang has managed to find that perfect balance of his own street cool, Ghesquière’s “weird” Balenciaga, and the house’s couture history. I know it’s a strong word – but this might almost be perfect 21st century Balenciaga. The statement coats, interesting fabrics, slick details, and modern cuts are exactly what this brand needs to keep it relevant, desirable, and unique. It’s beautiful.

I love…

    Some amazing work here. I love to see a designer really making use of a good atelier – some of this looks really technically difficult. Which is as it should be!
