Having looked at the full show and in probably not my best condition to comment since it's past 2 am here, I just want to say that even though I do know more or less what he's about and how he tends to grow obsessions on techniques for a season and explore them explicitly on his collections from start to finish, it's things like these what are just beyond me with this man:






[nowfashion]

I am familiar with sequential or 'evolving' looks that slightly morph into something else but look similar at first glance (I think Chalayan used to do this), but honestly, he's just sending the exact same look with a tiny modification down the runway here.. and several times, not just as a way to make a point on evolution or a technique.. not only the designs themselves scream 'use me' at fashion editors but it looks like he's also giving ideas and using his runway to show the 2 ways of wearing that same item ..

Anyway, just wanted to say that, I am not a Balenciaga fan so I might as well be missing the philosophy behind his insistence on repeated looks.

I like this one and its two other color variants, but that's about it.


nowfashion

The rest look like something a transvestite would wear.

Ok this is going to be one of those Balenciaga collections that will grow on me. I'm not really liking much of it at this point but I'll probably change my mind in a few months after I see it in magazines.

Are they wearing some sort of Doc Martins? Doc Balenciaga's.

Also why do all the models looks really manish? Sorry but

saying that this looks like H&M divided is the dumbest thing i've read on tfs in ages.

not such a fan of the looks so far and why are so many looks so similar to each other? i don't get it?

i'm pretty sure the items will look amazing in real life though, as they always do.

Guess those transvestites you've seen have a pretty decent taste .. I would never picture those in my city wearing something like this.. THIS is actually more their drift...

I really like Ghesquire's sense of dimension. The collection reminds me of his earlier work for some reason...around 2002-2004.

generally i like it. maybe the last dress pieces are too much for my taste. But the blouses and dresses with floral pattern look really gorgeous. i need to see it in HQ, more details and structure of fabric. but agree, it looks more winter than spring collection...
PS: the cast of this show is unbelievable. Gisele, Amber, Carolyn, Stella? omg, great!

I prefer the pieces with the metallics such as the vests that Anabela and Bo wore. But the pieces that were similar to what Miranda and Bambi I not so fond of.

I really hate the dogstooth, which is a pity because those pieces have really nice shapes. It's not as good as the last few collections from Ghesquière, and overall it's a bit messy. Some pieces stand out in each look and I just want to pick them out. I can see the vests working both on the streets and in editorials. The last look is gorgeous.
Part of me loves the boots while the other part that's obsessed with the A/W10 shoes would have liked to see something other than a pair of Doc Martens.

I'm not sure what's going on in my mind, but I think I love it, or at least more than I hate it.
