Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection for Balenciaga Fall 2009 was something out of a more glamourous era, without too costume-y. Completely wearable without looking like a sideshow, Balenciaga is quickly making it’s move up my ‘fashion designers I love’ list. (I also have a sh*t list- but that’s another day , people!) With a Parisian flair, sumptuous fabrics were draped elegantly without hiding the woman’s shape. The touch to detail , down to the flocked stockings (which I must whip out one of these days from my archived stocking drawer) and the strong shoulders resonated back to the 1940s and the 1980s. This is how it’s done.
