Balenciaga Fall 2014
DESIGNER: Alexander Wang
INSPIRATION: Simpler times that called for pieces that feel familiar without sacrificing his sense of humor. “I go back to pieces that feel familiar—it’s a sweater, it’s a wrap dress, it’s a raincoat—and I ask myself, ‘How did I make it feel special?’”
TRENDS: Knits—evening sweaters, ribbed pullovers, zippers as detailing, fur, exaggerated shoulders, slim high-waist pants.
PALETTE: Hunter green, blue, fuchsia, orange, red, black, grey and golden yellow
WHO WAS THERE: Kanye Westin the audience while Gisele Bundchen made a rare runway appearance closing out the show.
WHO SHOULD WEAR IT: Dynamic and stylish women who don’t want to wait for their doorman to get them from the cab with an umbrella.
