Nonetheless, the show went on with creative director Nicolas Ghesquière’s vision for the new season on full display, including his signature play on shapes. 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.
