balenciaga s/s09

balenciaga collection

The first look is great. I love Balenciaga's progression - they take chances but still have consistency. This line isn't the bright painted fabric like the prior collection but it still has great, sculptural construction. I tried on a jacket at a barney's sale (of below collection) and it had a crazy, handmade, high-construction-fabrication fit. Not in a bad way but just in a mind blowing way of clothing feeling and fitting like nothing else I have ever worn. It was stiff and sculpted and felt like body armor!
