Posted by Katya Vicheva on 04:12 //
Balenciaga Fall 2011 Fashion Show presented during Paris Fashion Week opened with models steeping on runway donning jackets that looked to be made of knitted leather also known as pleather.
Balenciaga’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière flaunted a nice play of thick leather coils, vertical stripes, volume and modern floral and took color-blocking and futuristic textures to a whole new level.
Balenciaga Autumn/Winter 2011/12 show featured Balenciaga woman, looking armored this season in looks featuring juxtaposition of hard and soft materials. Roped-leather vests and jackets showed up strong silhouettes while sheer-paneled top and vest paired with floral skirts in exotic prints was quite feminine. Models wore pointy-toed multi-strap shoes that looked must have.
Making the show all the more must see was model Miranda Kerr who stepped on runway just 2 months after giving birth. With Orlando Bloom and Anna Wintour among the front-row attendees, it turned out to be star studded show
Looks like floral pieces layered with sharp black vests and jackets, spongy sweaters that featured military detailing teamed with black versions of those floral skirts, asymmetrical color-blocked crepe de chine tunics paired with skinny trousers zippered up the back of the ankle, a square-cut navy silk top was worn with one of the folded skirts in black, with flashes of metallic gold detail. Designer Nicolas Ghesquière send most of the models in makeup-free look but some models showed off bright shadow painted like a mask over eyes and brows, a new fall 2011 beauty trend.
Talking about accessories, Balenciaga Fall 2011 handbags included structured and puffy woven clutches, rectangular clutch bags stuffed to produce a more rounded effect, and some slim and rectangular handbags featuring opulent embossed metallic work on Spanish leather.
Rounding up the show were a pair of coats inspired by an archival Cristobal piece from 1965.
