Balenciaga AW 06/07

This was Nicolas Gresquiere's 3rd collection at Balenciaga and my all time favourite! I felt it really echoed the couture of Cristobel Balenciaga, yet maintained a modern edgy vibe.
The fabrications used for the collection were inspired by those Balenciaga used in the 1960s. They were especially re-created for the collection, and included wool boucle tweeds. I think they create the real air of elegance the collection evokes.
The tailoring and structure in this collection leaves me in awe, beautiful strong silhouettes,sleek clean designs. I also adore the used of colour, blacks whites and neutrals interjected with bold pinks and mustards.
