PFW Balenciaga F/W 2013!

28 Feb

Alexander Wang owned his new creative director role at Balenciaga as he presented his highly anticipated debut collection for the French fashion house today in Paris.  Wang played it somewhat safe as he paid homage to the label by “going back to the archive”( a sign of respect among fashion’s elite). The very wearable collection had some of the usual Wang street vibe to it but was very graceful and chic- So Balenciaga!  Wang incorporated his own special touches of texture and some marble prints into the mostly black and white palette. The highlight for me was the shoes.  I particularly loved the “T” strap and “V” strap heels!

This collection silenced many nay sayers and left the supporters hungry for more, which is exactly what a young designer strives for!  Bravo Mr. Wang! Cheers to a job well done!
