15 years

Nicolas Ghesquière says good-bye after 15 years as the creative director at Balenciaga. I was blow-away by his latest RTW spring 2013 show and hopefully he will continue (either on his own or with another brand) his amazing work in the future. Not only has Ghesquière created some amazing collection throughout the years but also been credited for bringing the brand huge levels of commercial and industry acclaim and opening the label to a new wider audience. Go Ghesquière!

Balenciaga Resort 2013

The collections for resort 2013 are dropping in on Style.com and first out is an all time favourite, Balenciaga. Inspired by costumes that Cristobal Balenciaga made for a ballet performance in the 1930’s, Ghesquière is working a pale palette with colour such as light yellow, baby-blue/purple and creme. My favourites from the collection are the wide pinstriped trousers and the leather torso belt.
