Balenciaga Catwalk Fashion Show ss2010
Another surprising show of Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga, but not really what people expected. After his elegant Parisienne in draped jerseys, skirts and trousers – a look much copied this season – this collection looked a bit disappointing because it looked so familiar. The sporty and eclectic outfits had elements of former collections, the shiny black skinny trousers, sleeveless shirts with graphic lines in yellow and white and a patchwork of fabrics and colors for dresses and skirts. It didn’t give a visible answer to what the fashionworld needs right now. Although Ghesquieres answer might have been in the music-lyrics: back to the start again.
