Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2019

By  | 


About the collection: «Presented in the Balenciaga showroom during Couture Week back in January, this combined men’s and women’s Pre-Fall lineup was so outsized that it warranted two visits (before and after a show) to view every look. In the center of the vast space were monolithic screens depicting larger-than-life people in the clothes—and this, combined with the near-total absence of actual people, Demna Gvasalia included, made for a feeling that was at once serene and sterile.

With no distractions, but also little context, the mind arrived at certain empirical observations. Texture, for starters: remarkably smooth and yielding padded leather wrap-front coats in yellow and burgundy (worthy of whatever splurge); the return of draped, crushed velvet ensembles that were tickly to the touch; a crunchy surface of dimensional lacquered flowers covering every inch of rounded tops; and wildly plush fake fur alongside colorful spongy knits and cool polka-dot silks. An overly descriptive summary, perhaps, but the satisfaction derived from getting to wear these whenever one wants should count for something.» (For more go to VOGUE.COM)
