Balenciaga Mens S/S 2013 Paris
Quote:
A looser, easier silhouette took shape this season, bringing to mind the dandy style of Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto in the Eighties. Long, boxy coats had kimono-sleeve construction, some in unlined silk seersucker fabric. Roomy too were long shorts and an elongated tailored jacket. It was a confident new step for the brand into the menís arena. Artsy touches included optical motifs on T-shirts, a tropical flower print and vibrant Tamara de Lempicka colors to enliven the stark black, white and gray. -WWD

I find the second and third look a little too feminine for my taste.

The menswear always look half hearted! Think they really need to push it further! This is okay.

This is such a great collection. And I wouldn't call it feminine - I find the flower print and the loose silhouettes very refreshing. However, some models remind me of the S/S '12 womenswear collection. Probably it's the boxiness and emphasized shoulders.

I don't find anything here that would appeal to me. It's a huge step away from the vague 'direction' Balenciaga Mens had before, and I very disappointed by this. Reminds me strongly of some bad Prada Mens mash-up.
In the previous collections Balenciaga Mens at least included interesting footwear, if not something flat out crave worthy. Not that it ever compared to the pieces offered for women, but it was better than the usual never changing stuff or the unwearable craziness other designers offer for men. It was a nice balance. This time - boring and uninspired.

I would love if Balenciaga's womenswear collection would look like this on the daywear part, with the infusion of a few eveningwear pieces referencing the couture heritage of the house.
