Sci-fi Surprise

Paris…Balenciaga

Describing his spring collection as “sci-fi couture,” Nicolas Ghesquière from Balenciaga, presented a handful of men’s looks (six in total) amongst a very strong women’s showing. Even though it was a small offering, the experimentation with fabric, proportion and layering made a huge impact. A twist on color blocking, seen so predominately on spring’s runways, was shown in the form of a metallic, multidimensional tunic. The double breasted jacket cut at an asymmetrical angle was one of the standouts, while structured tailoring with a bit of luster, layered over metallic banded collared shirts could well be the ideal uniform for the future’s astronauts. Who said exploring space couldn’t be done in style?
