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.

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.
