Balenciaga Paris Fashion Week Aw15 Re See
“Stefon! Stefon! Balenciaga – a penny for your thoughts?” “Hey Team Ten. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! This collection has everything. American fashion designer Alexander Wang is back, and this time he’s gone crazy. Jump in and join the fashion party where you’ll see ladies who lunch, femme fatales, pearl earrings, dagger brooches and Wang’s take on Cristóbal Balenciaga’s trademark shapes including the cocoon coat, rounded jacket and bubble skirt. And boy, did he put the ‘fab’ into ‘fabric’: textural tweeds, windowpane wool and black mink. To paraphrase Rick James, the Balenciaga girls is “Super chic, super chic, she’s super-chicy, yow!“ Wear this collection and you’ll have your own Tyra Banks Vaseline Frenzy moment – and that’s a guarantee.
