Balenciaga Spring Summer 2011 Collection - Futuristic Vision with Couture Handmade Tradition

Nicolas Ghesquière has done it again with a beautiful collection for Balenciaga Spring Summer 2011. For this collection, they stated a street casting tour from London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Belgium and Australia and after looking through thousands of girls, they eventually picked 7 girls who is totally unknown to the fashion world and Nicolas Ghesquiere called them “Characters”. But then have all the top models such as Gisele Bündchen, Carolyn Murphy, Amber Valletta, Stella Tennant to close the show. The reason for them doing a 6 countries model casting tour is because “I was sick of the clone-model thing," the designer offered as explanation, adding: "It's about individuality." Said by Nicolas Ghesquiere

The show is full of what made the house of Balenciaga famous for since Cristobal Balenciaga founded the house, is the geometric shapes of the garments. But Nicolas Ghesquiere has taken this collection further, mixing the couture details such beadings, hand-made details mixing the laser cut precision paneling shapes for the jackets, skirts, shirts…. To give a futuristic yet pay an tribute to the past of the House of Balenciaga’s classic shapes. After all, I am being impressed by Nicolas’s talent and his vision for fashion season after season!
