The Show: Balenciaga Fall 2013
The Theme: A Pouf Back in Time
The Color Palette: Black and White
About the Collection: A softened, voluminous Balenciaga of yore was present at Alexander Wang’s design debut, in cuts and nipped tailoring that had an ounce of heritage reminiscence mixed in with a sleek contemporary aesthetic. Although Wang’s much-anticipated arrival came with tremendous buzz and anticipation, it will still take some time for him to get his bearings and prove what he can do for the house, however, I think his soft, respectful landing of the brand signature silhouettes is a great start.
