Balenciaga Fall 2011 | Paris Fashion Week

Balenciaga’s outing for fall 2011 was a strong one with creative director Nicolas Ghesquière’s futuristic vision taking on thick leather coils and vertical stripes. Color blocking also made an appearance alongside a fishnet pattern which was blown up to cover sleeves and even whole dresses. The Balenciaga woman looked armored this season, taking on a juxtaposition of hard and soft materials for a story of contrast.

    • Christopher Kane is the very first thing I thought of. That floral print, with the stripes on top (except CK’s stripes were neon)….glad I wasn’t the only one to see it.

    I agree that the last few collections haven’t been as great, but this one has a lot of good pieces. I think the styling is hurting it a little bit, here.

  2. Don’t get it at all. The models look like a bunch of sick people who are wearing a pile of cloths to get warm.
    This is a great example of how make-up and styling can make or break a show.
