Balenciaga Fall 2012: Balenciaga Inc.
Nicolas Ghesquière was inspired by office wear and business-dressing for the Fall 2012 Balenciaga collection. Really. This is what it would be like, working at Balenciaga Inc.
“It’s an idea I’ve had for a few years, about corporate clothes, and business-dressing. I wanted to play with it. So I imagined a company, Balenciaga, Inc., and what all the different women would wear to work there,” explained Nicolas Ghesquière.
His take on office wear is really one of a kind. I was stunned when I saw the 'Join a weird trip' slogan sweatshirt, I almost couldn't believe my eyes. Very impressive, loving the idea behind it, and how very different fabrics, shapes and colors can be incorporated into such an intense collection.
I noticed that the most prominent image of all the street style photos is no other than these two photographs of Hanne Gaby outside Balenciaga. Taken by Candice Lake, Hanne is taking the neon pink runway look to another level.
And finally, Kristen, looking effortlessly gorgeous in those leather pants and shiny silk jacket.
