Balenciaga Fall 2009, from the creative genius brain of Nicolas Ghesquière. i love the fabrics and the liquid draping- everything looks so luxe and touchable!! love the pairing of the rich velvets with the lace bandeaus peeking through and the sheer polka dot stockings with lots of creamy perfect skin that doesnt look at all overexposed. you can just see that the quality of the fabrics and the craftmanship is amazingly fine and those colours and patterns cannot be replicated. often balenciaga's shows are very fashion-forward and futuristic but this season has a soft wearable look that seems to draw a lot from the past as well as the future.
