Not only was Balenciaga's Spring/Summer collection jaw dropping (Star Wars inspired hats anyone?), there was one other breaking news that made me remember the show even more; the seat breakdown. I'm not going into details about that. But, despite the fact that guests had to watch the runway in standing mode, the crowd still cheered and applauded for the breath taking show Ghesquière and his team prepped.
On Thursday night, I got the privilege of seeing some of those covetable Balenciaga pieces up close at the private viewing event. I had expected to see more of the key runway pieces but the small scaled presentation was still pretty sweet. I can't get that two-toned leather jacket of my head now...
the collection reminds me much of lobsters, crabs, and coral reefs from the pieces' colors and prints.
the top flap reminds me of another bag that also starts with the letter "B" ..
