Chloe Sevigny in Balenciaga Spring 2009
So the Balenciaga collection by Ghesquiere was GENIUS. I loved it loved it loved it. And what a profound statement Nicolas made when someone asked him "Is this the future?" and he responded with "No, for me this is Balenciaga for today.". Of course I'm paraphrasing a little but he was completely and utterly right.
How many times can we look into the past and reach for the distant future? We need fashion for TODAY.
Now, I've seen Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Connelly wearing the metallic dresses from the collection and honestly - they looked like boring party dresses. To make it interesting one needs to either keep the jersey-tops worn underneath OR the leggings and shoes combo. Not both. One or the other.
So without further ado - Chloe Sevigny in Balenciaga Spring 2009. So avant-garde yet soooo chic, no?
