Notes on Style and Fashion

Posts Tagged ‘Nicholas Ghesquière

Two years ago, Balenciaga ushered in the wave of floral dresses with bulbous skirts and cinched waists. Ever the trend-setter, Nicolas Ghesquière has quite likely done it again. If what he created for Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 2010 show is any indication, a harder, tougher aesthetic is what we can expect to see on the racks of high-end department stores and smaller, mall stores. Next year promises to be full of  sleek leather and black fabric, a marked contrast from the florals and soft palettes typical of Spring/Summer looks past.

However, to serve as a contrast to the leather jodhpurs and tough hoodies, Ghesquière punched up the look with bits of color and sheer fabric–hard and soft. Ever the forward thinker, the designer also turned his eye to sustainable materials, using fabrics that were organic or recycled. While it may not be that Ghesquière was making a political statement–“Go eco!”–he certainly made a fashion statement, opting to use the fabrics that he did when envisioning his new look.

Be prepared to see the inspired Balenciaga look in a matter of months!

la fashionista has had an interest in fashion and style since childhood when she first saw her mother dress in the various fashion of the 80s. Her mother was also a great seamstress, which was a definite influence on la fashionista's foray into fashion. Sadly, her mother's sewing talent did not get passed on to la fashionista.

But that doesn't mean that she doesn't still love talking about fashion. Because she does!
