Balenciaga Resort 2012 Collection

 Nicolas Ghesquière describes his latest Resort 2012 creations as different from his usual designs. He has adapted the silhouette making it “longer than usual, and with more volume.” With sun visors at the ready, Ghesquière seemed to head down a more toned down route for the collection, opting for a reserved colour palette (for him at least) and without his usual barrage of prints and textures. It was clear that his focus was on defining those artfully twisted, oddly proportioned silhouettes - each one of them unique, elongated and billowing, almost like tall ballerinas wearing oversized tutus.

His designs placed emphasis on arching the shoulders and drawing your eye to the bottom half, where many of the designs seems structured precariously, almost like a modern piece of architecture that on first glimpse seems to defy gravity. This collection was also more mature, with a strong sense of sophistication running throughout the pieces - is Ghesquière moving towards an older audience? or are his skills simply leading him to become more refined? Only time will tell, but its clear that the Balenciaga woman is still one full of imagination and femininity.
