Balenciaga A/W 2010-2011:

I am literally gaga for Balenciaga and to say anything bad about Balenciaga hurts my heart. I mean it is literally one of my top 5 favorite designer brands ever. So I'm glad Nicolas Ghesquière made me fall in love with the epic brand all over again. The collection was shown in a beautiful studio in Paris. Bright color combinations and textures stole the show to make the collection seem more spring/summer which is, to me, always more exciting than the Autumn/Winter collections. And what Karl Lagerfeld did to clogs, Nicolas Ghesquiere did to loafers. I mean I am dyeing for a pair of those color-blocked chunky heeled wedges. Their so sick. Classic and incredibly modern at the same time. Balenciaga actually already re-did loafers---> here .
Besides the amazing styling, the collection was still fabulous. Nicolas played with, and mastered, proportions with loads of choices for outerwear and fur. There was an outerspacey feel to the collection demonstarted in the coats with the metalic sheems, wing like backs, paddings, and new-age silhouettes. The shift like dresses are enough to make me want to shell out thousands of dollars for one. The way the bright colors are mixed with the black stipes and the short hemline works perfectly with the crewneck and long sleeves bringing the look into winter with the right fur vest, black tights and boots. Its such a modern statement piece but in no way is it over the top. I literally can't stop raving about it.
The only thing about the collection I didn't want were the pants and the baggy peplum tops. I mean they were incredibly unflattering silky old lady pants in bright prints, some of which were made to look like underwear was being worn over the pants.
Another dress which was crazy beautiful was had transparent nude colored slevees and high neckline for cold days when you don't want to look like your wearing your entire wardrobe to keep from getting frostbite. The dress comes with a black and white floral outline print with a few nude colored spaces set in. There were some preppy sweaters in storng hues with high necklines and embroidery which would be killer with a pair of leather pants and heels. The collection was so genius I actually teared up. I kind of am one of those crazy fashion ladies from another planet (me)
