The Runway Sniper #07
Balenciaga Menswear Fall Winter 2008/2009
Finally the elusive pics of Balenciaga Menswear Collection Fall Winter 2008/2009 is finally unveiled at www.balenciaga.com. Although some pics have appeared in Arena Homme Magazine before, it is still interesting to see what other ingenious pieces Nicolas Ghesquiere has up his sleeve for the coming fall collection.
Although I applaud Nicolas Ghesquiere for his ideas and concepts, but seriously, I am not entirely attracted to the pieces. It looks too sculpted and space age. Not truly my cup of tea. But I know there will be lots of fans out there who appreciates this very forward thinking collection. Nicolas has plans to align the mens' and womens' collection more closely...hence you see the rounded shoulders and cocoon shapes as see on the women's runway collection. The robotic leggings/pants do have signs of what he had done previously for women's spring summer 2007 collection. But this time it is more sculpted than glitzy.
One thing I like is the suit...it looks super sleek and streamlined. Definitely my type of jacket. I will look out for that, of course, not in silver colour as depicted in the pic (the description says it's silver although you cannot really tell from the B&W pics).
Balenciaga...a brand to watch out for.:-P
