INTO THE ARCHIVES... Balenciaga SS||2006 and Balenciaga SS||2016

Well, this collection might be an exploration for Alexander Wang, but more likely into the archives and work of Nicoloas Ghesquière for Balenciaga [left]. From BoF by Tim Blanks:  ‘This could have been a lame duck collection for Alexander Wang, but that wasn’t the way he approached it at all. “Let’s do something people would expect least,” he told himself. Ruffles, lace, feathers, “things no one associates with me, things I’ve always wanted to venture into, like romanticism, sensuality, overt femininity,” an ebullient Wang declared after his Balenciaga send-off on Friday [right].'
