After waiting about four months without knowledge of how will new Balenciaga under the wings of Alexander Wang look like, today in the morning, in Paris, the show began. The whole setting was in a old, but renovated Parisian building with white marble, huge mirrors, black and white tiles and spiral stairs. It gave a feeling of Balenciaga at time of Cristobal. So taking the seat with Olivier Zahm camera the show begins!It all begins with a typical Wang touch- a elegant t-shirt, black trousers, fur and mostly casual elegance. But thanks god Wang didn’t do it all in a New York way- indeed it was all so Paris! Alexander Wang continued the sophisticated minimalism of Ghesquiere with super cool fur sweatshirts that looked like white marble and black dresses with open back… Sexy but delicate.The furry sweatshirts are this seasons my favourite! They look so street style and modern! Mixed with laced leather leggins and a leather head decoration it is great! Only Wang could do it! And what about the shiny elegant dress code? I see it already on Carine Roitfeld, the real queen of french elegance! The new model of bag is for sure the one from python witha a classical closing. It is a comfortabel handbag that is easy to wear but at the same time ideal for every event! The hit of the show was for sure the greenish jacket with shirling on sleeves and the complete of sweater with skirt that was toatally embroidered with something that looked like paisleys! Shiny!Congratulations to Alexander Wang! Really the collection was great! I think, that Balenciaga from now on will not change diametrically, but it will be more sporty and hopefully better quality!
