The stripe shirts are see-through? Seems like something out of an international male catalog...

Very unimaginative for Ghesquiere. It makes sense and the flow of the collection is solid but the actual pieces are very mediocre. I actually thought he was going to be especially strong this season...

Not to bad typical Balenciaga!

I'm really in love with this.

I absolutely love the sweater looks with the longer skirts. To me, this feels like a true mix of Balenciaga from a few years ago and the new direction Nicholas has been taking the house since that period.

Not a stellar collection this season unfortunatly. It does follow the typical 'Ghesquiere' Balenciaga silhouette but its very basic. I'm sure the collection is more focused on the technically brillant fabrics and construction, as usual with Balenciaga, but on the whole not very stimulating. Also I would have to disagree with other users who say its abit Dries Van Noten-ish because Dries has an entirely different aesthetic.

I like the shoes, but everything else is pretty disappointing

well i like this. it does seems like a mix between old and new balenciaga, and still it's a coherent collection imo. it's not as strong a statement as last season, it's softer and easier to digest, which, for me, aren't necessarily bad characteristics in a well done collection. i'm in love with the 16th look.

I hate these boxy shapes. I feel like Nicolas needs to move away from this direction because it's been like this for a while now and it's just not very flattering. I miss the more classic shapes he used to do.

There are a few outstanding pieces - the knitted leather, the collage dresses with the twisting details, etc. - but really hated the fishnet dresses and most of separates. Not his strongest....

lol. It definitively seems like "Thats it"

That chunky knit looks awesome, why didnt he used it more and ..erm .. more appropiately?

What has happened to Balenciaga? Is it .. should I dare say it ... passé?
