Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2012

Images style.com

I’ve got a really soft spot forΒ Nicolas GhesquiΓ¨re’s creations for Balenciaga who usually delivers some of my favorite collections every season. But this time I’m not totally taken, his pre-fall collection has a little too many 80′s references for my taste and those hideous zebra opaque tights just doesn’t do it for me, so I guess it’s perhaps down to the styling. However there are plenty of pieces here I love like many of the leather pieces and lovely jumpers and I’m really curious on their new range of earrings, and lets not forget about the shoes. See the whole collection here and make up your own mind.

    Yeah I think some of the pieces are nice on their own with different looks, the styling is a bit too cheesy and tacky in my opinion but there is potential in some of them! I like the shoes also! :)

    Those pink shoes are amazing! But I don’t like the third look at all.

    Yeah, I’m with you, the collection was a big let down…
    I was so in love with the last runway show, I couldnt wait for prefall…And then…
    I just liked the two tone leather skirt, you know the blue and taupe one?, but even this one is a bit more Acne than Balenciaga…
