I think Balenciaga’s recruiting Alexander Wang as their new designer was a touch of heaven. Paris Fashion Week itself is full of phenomenal designs that we still have to absorb, but definitely, Alexander Wang had the most innovative ideas to put out there. Many people admired how loyal he was to the brand’s legacy, while still showing a bit more of himself in his designs.
There were so much to absorb: his high waisted floral pants to his black and white blazer outfits, it was a great opportunity for the fans of both brands to see them come together. It’s not just the patterns and colours. It was all about the silhouettes and the cuts that made it so much more appealing. Whether it’s a perfect, petit A-line skirt, sporty shorts, tulip shaped dress, sleek and sexy blazer and peplum tops, it’s all there. And let’s not forget about his accessories! The heels had a bit more of a personal and feminine touch to it with lingerie straps at the heels and ankle strapped woven heels for the sporty looks. It’s all in the details to make the look perfect!
I’m not sure if I ever thought ‘I could wear that’ when I saw Balenciaga’s previous RTW collections. But with Wang’s collection, I think I was wishing it was already a part of my wardrobe. Not sure if it’s because I love me some androgynous boxy cuts, and this show was full of it, or I’m just completely biased towards the designer. I think it’s fascinating that he managed to capture the looks of sexy and feminine as well as the boxy athletic look all at once. It was a big appeal to not just high class Parisian girls, but women from all over the world in diverse classes.
