The Runway Sniper #19

Balenciaga Menswear Spring Summer 2009

Kudos to Nicholas Ghesquiere for finally allowing his menswear creations to see the light on a runway show. I read in an Arena Homme article that Nicholas do not believe in runway shows for men. He feels weird about it. So this came as a surprise when he slot in a few Spring Summer 2009 menswear looks for his latest womenswear show. Amazing. Although, I feel some cuts (the one on Cole Mohr especially) are too 'weird' and pushing the limit for me, there are definitely some interesting jackets amongst the sea of grey and black creations. I applaud his ingenuity in cuts and form. They are very form fitting and yet interesting, hinting at his usual sci-fi references. These menswear looks are very in tune with the women's styles, so I guess Balenciaga has finally align their fashion direction for both genders:-)

What is your view of the new Balenciaga collection?

Hate, love or on the fence?

SOme looks are quite cool. But of course, like you said, Cole's look is not very practical.:-)

I would love to see a full mens runway show!:-P
