THE DEATH OF FASHION EXCESSES

Continuing on the same elegantly relaxed line of thought as Proenza is Nicolas Ghesquière. His ideas for the pre fall 2009 collection are a girl's dream. I could feel the excitement rising while examining his looks on Style last night! He has captured a crucial moment in time, reflecting the economic pain we are currently experiencing, his designs and creativity have flourished and display a somewhat more quiet tone. Supercharged with street influences accompanied by luxury accents like fur, the overall impression is a nod to urban culture. The drop crotch trousers, skinny jeans, motorcycle boots and gigantic platform booties (which made my pulse race) will become instant editorial successes and the silhouettes will probably be copied and found in Top Shop very soon. Beautiful looking and wearable pieces of clothing seem to suddenly be all the rage.
We can meditate on today's lack of fashion excesses, a new era!
I'm having dinner tonight with one of my best friends, a girl with one of the best fashion sense in London, and I'm looking forward to gossip, laughs and a
burger.

In addition to the subdued excess (if we may call it that), I'm loving the more toned-down palette - the grays, peaches and creams are so lovely.

I think this is one of the best, in terms of wearablity, collections that Nicolas has done at Balenciaga! I'm not a fan of the fur, but I love proportions of the looks with the furry arms... the layers and styling are amazing!!
