A little unexpected news are that one of my favourite designers, Nicolas Ghesquière, and Balenciaga are parting ways after 15 years with Nicolas at the helm of the iconic fashion house. According to WWD, the split is a joint decision on both parts and no further news on what’s next has been confirmed.

    Grammatical/Spelling Comment: Hi Hi (Love the blog!!) Just a quick note. In english the say is “at the Helm” not the Helmet – It comes from an old sailing term meaning, driving the boat… 🙂 x

    I was so blown away by his last collection for Balenciaga that I am really feeling how sad this is! I wonder what he will be up to next. Perhaps his own label? x
