Balenciaga Resort 2014

1balenciaga

All eyes have been on Alexander Wang and Balenciaga since the New York designer was appointed Creative Director of the renowned house. Wang’s premiered Balenciaga Resort 2014 collection yesterday, so obviously I had to, first review the pictures without waiting another minute, and second, share with all of you.

It was very smart of Wang to use the brand’s DNA (i.e. boxy shapes, bichrome palette) in ways that are so obvious to some but yet to the more cultivated eye they have been toyed with and massaged … this is a good thing.  Lastly, there are some great great dresses and some beautiful tailoring, I am already a fan. The shoes feel 100% Wang with a twist, I am not going to complain.

Hats are back. Fringed, in a plastic material akin to shredded cassette tape, the fedoras complemented sandals and heels also adorned with the stripping technique.

What I am most excited by is the new handbag from Wang – a simple tote, with a heavy chain-linked handle, that may just catalyze the buying frenzy the designer was brought on to incite.

See the collection below.
