And the winner of my Top Three belonging to Balenciaga’s Spring-Summer 2013 Collection is:
3) Look C. Pretty pretty dress. Wearing it is like being dressed in a cascade or in never ending rain. It’s similar to the one before, the same edges, and the same style of collar and it’s sleeveless as well. The black line under the hips accentuates them (which is very important because the cut is too straight and can make our bodies look a little too square), plus, the optical illusion is here again: short dress? Not! Light color equals enlargement, right? That’s why there are so many black vertical curvy lines (movement, again due to the cut of the dress) and that’s why there’s a big black patch in the middle of the chest. See the shape of the patch? It gets smaller at the end, and that’s because little ribcage generally is a sign of little waist. Again, insinuations here are very important because of the shape of the whole thing.
So what do you think? We’re going to miss Ghesquière intelligent compositions? Of course we will! But hey! That’s how fashion works, right? Constant changes, pure impermanence. This isn’t the end of Balenciaga; it’s just the end of an era inside of it. You know what they say: “every ending is just a new beginning”.
Follow Balenciaga’s example, crazy diamonds! Change constantly because innovation is the only possible way to achieve development and improvement. Shine all over and dream on like I know you do. Take care. Lotta Love. Ciao!
