Balenciaga Spring 2014 #PFW

"Last season was the prologue to my first steps at the house, looking at the codes, and this time I wanted to inject a sense of ease and sportswear into it," explained Alexander Wang before sending out his second Balenciaga collection beneath the stupendous vaulted arches at the Paris Observatory. Wang had been studying the intricate secrets of the techniques Cristóbal Balenciaga developed in couture fabrics - or, at least, he's made a start, because diving into the wellspring could easily last a lifetime. His first looks - rounded-shoulder techno biker jackets and stiff, curved, high-waisted shorts - were made from a leather-bound twine inspired directly by something in the archive. And by the end, he was sending out short, cape-back tailoring and a pristine shirtdress that bore a faint echo of Cristóbal's monasticism." -
