Wow this has been a hot summer, or more to the point—humid. Not particularly enjoyable. I am looking forward to fall with it’s cooler temperatures and sense of new beginnings. And for pre-fall Balenciaga has mixed it up with a slightly left of center collection striking out in a bold yet alluring direction. With an eighties zeitgeist, and seventies romance, this lineup is a frenetic offering of opposing or dueling sentimentalities.

In contrast you also find traditional florals in untraditional arrangements—like the crop tops with spandex leggings and what can only be described as bonnets—yes you heard that right.

From the classically cut plaid patterned trenches to the demure knee skimming dresses in solid shades of topaz and indigo to flowing pant suits you will find a calming element in an otherwise off kilter kaleidoscope of unsettling yet captivating ensembles.

Saturated satins in jewel tones are draped in all manner of garments, from sheath maxis to wrap dresses and peasant tops. They are juxtaposed against highly structured jackets in dark tweeds and deconstructed puffers. In contrast you also find traditional florals in untraditional arrangements—like the crop tops with spandex leggings and what can only be described as bonnets—yes you heard that right.

Add a killer pair of over the knee boots in an array of colors and textures from vinal to lace to an embroidered pattern of etched florals, and out of the box pieces that demand a second look and you have a lineup that is not for the faint of heart. But a not to be forgotten statement in an arena that is ever more challenging in holding one’s attention.

    These looks are pretty popping on their own but the footwear really turns each outfit into a statement. Well at least we got a slight break from the heat this week. The humidity really needs to go away though.

    I really like the colour contrasts, there’s something that draws me in when two colours that normally wouldn’t be combined are put together in an artistic way 🙂

    I absolutely love the shoes and boots but the clothes look weird to me….especially the first and last. It reminds me of olden days when the babies are covered that way in the cradle.

    Honestly I am ambivalent about this collection. I love much of it, the drama and rich fabrics, but the boots look like they would feel terrible on, and the bag around the neck, seems like a symbol I do not care for… but I am glad you shared it, it is artistic and you describe it beautifully, as always. Oh, the velvet luggage, fabulous !! Yes, hot outside….steamy…

    It’s always the same hen I come here and see a collection, like this Balenciaga pre-fall, looovely! The “always the same” is because I want to choose one favorite piece and I end up loving everything! But today I will choose one 🙂 The floral blue dress 🙂 The boots are also great and oh, OK, I loved all 🙂 Hope you have a very lovely day!
