Bulky jackets and sculpted dress silhouettes dominated the runway as well as high-waisted shorts. A change from fall’s bold coils, strips and netting, the Balenciaga woman took on metallic panels and abstract prints for spring in a showing of pure modern clothing.

There is a certain charm about Balenciaga’s pre-fall 2011 collection which serves as the luxe successor to the spring 2011 show. Somewhat tough with structured silhouettes and tough plaid; any harshness is offset by luxurious jewel tones and furs accented by a wallpaper-esque backdrop.
