Balenciaga Spring 2013 Paris

Hello to an architectural latin festival of ruffles and ridges! Balenciaga’s Spring 2013 collection consisted of girly motifs which looked strong and modern with asymmetric skirts and blouses acting as key elements to be devoured. A mostly black and white color palette confirmed the Spring 2013 black&white trend we have been seeing on the runways since New York. Every season, we all wait anticipating what Balenciaga designer, Nicolas Ghesquière, will do each season. Beforehand, Ghesquière said, “It’s the most sensual collection I’ve ever done”. We agree.

The ruffles seemed like they had their own pulse as the models strutted down the narrow aisles, in sharp contrast to cropped tops and T-shirts, the exact type of unique, unexpected contrast we always wait to see Ghesquière do so masterfully. As actress Kristen Stewart sat front row, we couldn’t help but think we could see the scandalous actress nonchilantly stomp onto the red carpet wearing every single look.

We can’t forget one of the admired attributes of the house of Balenciaga is it never forgets its heritage. Even in this Spring 2013 collection, there was an – stiff, romantic ruffles made this new collection true to the brand’s origins. With tailored tweed pantsuits to balance out the collection, we are happily pleased to say Balenciaga remains one of the most desired designers to grace any fashion lover’s armoire.
