Fall 2007 - Balenciaga

Sweet glory, Nicolas Ghesquière's ethnic/athletic/preppy collection featured some of the most amazing jackets and blazers I've seen in some time. Impeccable tailoring and perfect candy striping made for wool blazers that Brooks Brothers would kill for. The fabric ranged from somber charcoal to eccentric tie-dye and electric stripes. The shoes were some cross between Timberland boots or football cleats and Birkenstocks or Crocs. Or something like that. They are very hard to describe, but they were certainly more amazing than those Timberland boot Manolos that were all the rage (blegh) a few years ago. Delicious and dreamy down-filled puffers and snorklers and fur-trimmed parkas also made the cut. FUR! FUR! FUR! Everybody everywhere will be wearing fur next winter! Pictures to come...
