|Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2013 1st look|
At Balenciaga, Nicholas Ghesquière left us with one of the most intricate collections of the season (for the few fashionistas that have not read the news lately, he is parting away from the brand). No other man can play with clothes in such a beautiful art form than Mr. Ghesquière, who has turned the house into one of the most demanding French brands, making top celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, and street styles appear stunning.

The show started with a model wearing a white halter top with a unique dark trouser. The real adrenaline began when the next model walked down the runway wearing a black ruffled dress layered with white underneath, forming a high-slit that ran all the way up her leg. It felt as if Mr. Ghesquière had mastered the art of femininity move, for the ruffles moved beautifully as the models walked the runway. This collection was as Mr. Ghesquière recalled, “the most sensual collection I’ve ever done.” Looking back at past shows, this was in fact, the most revealing collection that we had seen at Balenciaga. The choice of pairing the suits with bra tops made everything so much daring.

We could say the most revealing part of the show were the asymmetrical skirts that left little to the imagination. The tweed skirts (from what we could describe as) were another exceptional part of the collection. The finale of models wearing those stunning laced dresses left every women waiting for spring to arrive, and for those who are now just knowing what Balenciaga is, should hurry to shop for this collection, for we cannot tell if we’re going to experience another show as Mr. Ghesquière delivered.
