The show began with short shorts and boxy shoulders, with jackets reminiscent of high school letterman varsity jackets. Nothing says Balenciaga more than strong shapes, so not suprisingly, Nicolas Ghesquière drew a bit from the past as well as androgyny, paving a distinctive spring 2012 path with high shine fabrics,color-blocking, and asymmetry.
Pastel blue, black leather, a floral motif and delicate embroidery can seem so contradictory, yet young talent Olivier Rousteing blended them together for a gorgeous union. For SS12, Balmain kept the short hem and body-hugging dresses, but slowly introduced sweeping maxis and trousers as well.

With Lady Gaga on board, Thierry Mugler may just have created its own set of provocative little monsters. There was a fair share of cutouts and a great deal of sparkle, however balance was maintained in the neutral wash of the color palette. Still, we wouldn’t mess with a Mugler woman- she’s tough, strong, and certainly knows what she wants.

I see a lot of collections, and I forget a lot of collections. This one however, most certainly stood out amongst the rest. Balenciaga’s Pre-Fall 2011 Collection was full of assertive shapes and colors, giving a strong indication that the 90s have returned – pointy shoes, cropped lengths, and silk bomber jackets, anyone?
