Show Review: Balenciaga Spring 2013
By Claire

Balenciaga has come to be known amongst the chic set for its inventive silhouettes, sci fi predilections, unique prints, and lustworthy shoes. While Nicolas Ghesquière tends to focus on more menswear inspired fits with boxy jackets and tapered trousers, he wholly embraced the feminine ruffle for Spring 2013, adding the flourish to peplumed tops and slashed skirts.

Hems were high on asymmetrical skirts, revealing glorious peeks of thigh. More signature suits were offered a saucy vibe, with blazers covering midriff baring crop tops. Chez Balenciaga, skin is in.

And what of those prints? Like other designers for Spring 2013, Ghesquière stuck to a color palette of mostly black and white, using the neutral shades to infuse tweed like pairings, witnessed on slit mini skirts, even more abbreviated tops, and skirt sets.

Later on, however, he embarked on more ambitious and colorful patterns pairing geometric tops in muted yellow with jagged hemmed skirts, lined diagonally or vertically with designs reminiscent of sparse tree branches.

The lace up oxfords in black and beige looked unsuspectingly regular, until a sideways glance revealed a cut out cube heel. A detail quirky enough to sustain true fans for yet another season.
