Oh my God, this is fantastic! So grunge, yet very elegant, I love it so much!

Nicholas seriously NEVER gets it wrong. There hasn't been a single Balenciaga collection I haven't liked since 2005.

Hmmm... am expecting more from ghesquiere. Looks more commercial than ever.

And the last coat looks like the fur version of gareth pugh.

The best thing might just be the styling... Especially the double skirt layering in the forth pic.

Whoa! Not what I was expecting whatsoever! I will say that I hate that first dress, but the rest is wonderful! I'm feeling a little Marc Jacobs circa fall '06, and I'm liking it. I can't wait for Style.com to put out the rest of the pictures. (Assuming there are more, at least.)

The first dress is rather odd. The length of it along with the boots and accessories only adds to the odd silhouette. Everything else looks very nice! I really hope this is a sign of what's to come for fall.

It's not as forward as I expected from Balenciaga. But, I still like much of it. The first look feels a little too Marc Jacobs fall 06 for me though.

I actually think the first dress would look a bit better with heels and maybe an inch shorter. As it is it's got a pretty nice shape.

I'm loving the pants, particularly the black textured ones in the third image.

Overall though I think this is a little too layered for what I've come to expect from Balenciaga, or maybe the layering here is just a little too bulky.

But nevermind, the pre collections aren't always the best barometer for where the runway collections will go.

Well its certainly unexpected for Balenciaga, I dunno if I like it though. I love the grey pants but the shoes are sorta gross. Not feeling it, even though I love Balenciaga

I like everything except the first look. That gown paired with biker boots? It's a little faux-pas, no?

I wonder where he will take this inspiration for Fall 2009? The shoes are an interpretation of Spring 2009, right? But how to walk in them? Its like a sock attached to a heel!! Yikes!
