    Exactly what I thinking,Lena. That patchwork-copying that surfaced has really haunted him. I think that's why the collections lately have been less than impressive. Too bad because he was such a tremendous talent in the early days of his stint at Balenciaga....now he's let it all go down the corporate tube.

    I so agree with your observations Softgrey*!!! Hussein and Kokosalaki...uh huh :rolleyes:

    Actually, softgrey, I've heard that V absolutely refuses to shoot ANY Balenciaga anymore. I don't know why this is but it's probably something to do with this great Balenciaga boycott I keep hearing about.

    Those skirts are wonderful! :heart: They are actually called "tulip skirts" and were popular for a brief period during the 1950's. I think it's an adorable look. Who cares about practicality anyhow... :innocent:

    Is it because of the copying? Isn't he dating make-up 'queen' Kaliadros still who's a regular at V? Sorry for the off-topic gossip :lol:

    I'm not too into this collection, but the details are definitely superb.
    some of the cuttings and forms are also amazing :heart:

    Yes, I think they are still dating.

    I'm not sure if it is because of the copying. I didn't actually realize it until this person told me and I went through a few recent issues of V. Sure enough, no Balenciaga in sight. Weird, isn't it?

    I have a ton of V issues in storage that I plan to go through soon so maybe I can see exactly when they stopped featuring Balenciaga. I think it was quite awhile after the copying occurred.

    well, i certainly do like to be able to walk in a skirt/dress, much more if i spent a small fortune on it, but i may be just the exception :P

    The 'scandal' regarding his copying (see his patchwork collection) came up months after the show, when all the Balenciaga editorials were well under way.
    I know x-Balenciaga clients that felt quite cheated by Nicola's attitude, hence they dont 'trust' the originality of his creativity anylonger ...

    (btw, this latest collection has a lot of Sharon Wauchomb elements in there :innocent: )
