Balenciaga Spring 2017 Ready-To-Wear: ”Heretic homage”


This season Demna Gvasalia stated he wanted to explore “the obsessive interest in achieving a particular fit” and “the sensations which arise when specific fabrics touch skin”. Marking the relationship between a designer and his clients’ desires,he reinterpreted his somehow fetishistic approach by basically working with spandex,a synthetic stretch fabric.The result was a more coherent and to-the-point collection than before,the spandex boots were definitely ‘made for walking’ and the skin tight blouses draped beautifully. I have to admit i’m no fan of the oversize silhouette in the way Gvasalia structures it nor do i see any Balenciaga-ish in those exaggerated shoulders,but they do seem to arouse interest.What was truly modern was the color palette of the collection,ranging from bold fuchsia to  bright blue.As for the accessories,well,i’ll go for the gloves.Only.
