After an unannounced week of silence due to a nasty cold and a somewhat cranky internet connection, let’s get back into the swing of things.
The lovely Natalie asked me a few posts ago (in the comment section) about my thoughts on the last Balenciaga collection. You must know (and you probably do unless you were living under a rock for the past few months – fashion news wise) that it was Nicola Ghesquière’s last collection for the renowned fashion label before passing the torch to Alexander Wang (after a lot of rumours and a good dose of speculation madness). One can easily see why the designer referred to it as „the most sensual collection I’ve ever done“. The first look, and probably the most cited one, is nothing else but a pantsuit combined with a bra top. Although it is not that easy to imagine WHEN, WHERE and above all HOW you are supposed to wear it, there is something very much appealing about that look nontheless. It is polished and well constructed and in the same time it is also unexpectedly revealing. I for one can imagine wearing that top over a t-shirt but maybe I just saw one too many episodes of you-know-which-series or I was simply thinking about the black-harness-over-white-t-shirt-combo sported by Taylor Tomasi Hill a few seasons ago. Either so, Alasdair McLellan did a brilliant job of capturing the beauty of these pieces and so did the stylist (it kind of makes me want to wear every single ring of mine).
Anyway, this black and white shot was patiently waiting to be published and now I’m relieved to get it out of my system. Literally. Not so sure about this look though.
