Paris Fashion Week AW15: Balenciaga

Balenciaga’s creative director Alexander Wang did a brilliant job at keeping the classic brand Balenciaga pieces smart, with an added edge.

The colour palette was kept simple, featuring grey, black and silvers, which meant that all the outfits shown, linked together and nothing was out of place.

A theme that ran throughout the show was oversized jumpers and coats, that each had a small broach keeping it closed, which read CB, the shapes of the coats came across retro and cool yet secretary-like.

The embellishments and accessories were much more up to date and felt more street, which was a clear sign that Wang had been a part of the show. The models had very simple hairstyles, which were dragged back into a neat bun while wearing chandelier style earrings. The thick black belts added more of an urban feel to the show but still kept a classic look.

One key piece was a halter neck jumpsuit made from suit material and a polkadot top, the jumpsuit was worn with small black leather clothes and pointed heels, the outfit was the perfect mixture of urban and formal.

The production of the show had quite an eerie feel; the music had connotations of a horror film, which fit very well with the dark colour scheme.
