Balenciaga with designer Nicolas Ghesquière shows a terrific fashion collection for teenagers and young people. Balenciaga fashion show was also a casting. Designer Nicolas Ghesquière opened with a trio of unknown girls with short, spiky hair that his team cast from the street, and he closed with the biggest super model, Gisele Bündchen. Other models in between: Amber Valletta, Carolyn Murphy, and Stella Tennant.
Ghesquière made references to the house’s past—a famous leaf-paneled dress of Cristobal’s apparently influenced the cocooning shape of pied de coq coats. Nice outerwear in red and black or white and black.
