This week Balenciaga unveiled it's pre F/W 2012 collection and I have to say I'm absolutely in love with it. Nicolas Ghesquiere did a fantastic job on creating this 80s inspired collection and I'm already wishing summer away wanting to wear this colour palette.
I'm never much of a fan of the spring/summer collections and I'm over this years pastels before they've even begun, just as I was with last years colour blocking.
This pre fall collection also gives us a really good insight into what to expect from next weeks F/W show in Paris.
If you know me well you'll know that I'm a massive Balenciaga fan but haven't loved Ghesquiere's work in the past couple of years. It's been a little lackluster in my opinion but this collection gets me excited about Balenciaga again.
I adore anything with an 80s reference and Ghesquiere always manages to mix it up whilst being classically Balenciaga.
The colour palette is what makes me most excited, I'm obsessed with the mix of tones and textures in earthy 80s/70s shades.
I die for this collection but what are your thoughts? will you be rocking this style come winter? or are you more excited for this summers patisserie pastels?
