All Eyes on Balenciaga

It’s Paris Fashion Week and naturally all eyes are on Balenciaga’s ready-to-wear collection. I wasn’t going to post about the fashion weeks  months until they were all over, but I have a soft spot for Balenciaga so I couldn’t resist.

Balenciaga has really influenced my sense of style and my understanding of fashion. The 2007 Ready to Wear Fall collection has been definitive for my style and has translated into my love for blazers, colourful tights and ‘ethnic’ scarfs and prints. Nicolas Ghesquière always pushes the envelope and this year was no different. Ghesquière balanced pragmatism and luxury in a way that will not only sell in the stores, but also keep fashion moving forward in difficult times. Below are some of my favourite looks, check out the draping on those skirts!
