Balenciaga’s Power DressingBalenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière sent out his own vision of 80’s power dressing with the label’s fall 2012 collection presented during Paris Fashion Week. Coats with puffed-up shoulders opened the show, featuring bright dresses in electric blue and scarlet layered underneath. Metallic detailing and graphic prints brought a futuristic appeal to the strong silhouettes. Besides outerwear, the autumn season also offered mid-length skirts and slouchy trousers.

    I often like Balenciaga, but I just… don’t know what’s happening here. Maybe I just don’t “get” it, but I don’t like any of this.

    I’m trying to like few pieces, but if I have to try and actually MAKE me like them, then I don’t.
    I think that a lot of these pieces are just out-dated, and not ready to be taken back with the word “retro” to label it. Lets take the outfit Hanne Gaby is wearing as an example. This is what I would expect seeing a 80 years old grandma in a American movie from the 80’s. If I had seen her, I would think “tacky, ugly, grandmad”.
    I think it’s a shame, since Balenciaga is normally so amazing (imo) and their last collection was much better to me.
