Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2008 2009 Preview
It’s been a madhouse the past few days. I’m sure y’all have noticed the hard work I’m doing on my site and all the sparse updates; I’ve gained so much weight from being in front of the computer for so long! You think it’s easy being a one-man circus? No, let me tell you it ain’t so. ANYHOO, let’s get back to business. I just heard from someone that Anna Wintour and the American Vogue team went to Balenciaga right this moment to view the collections in what they call "Market Week". Yes, a FULL month ahead of Paris fashion week. According to the snitch, Anna & Co. went to there today (yesterday for you third world folks) for a preview. Photo of the Balenciaga showroom below.
Here’s what to expect for Fall/Winter 2008/2009. Colour palette: tangerine orange, white, black, beige, ecru, tomato red. There’s a pair of cobalt blue skinny jeans, mesh tights, a salmon-coloured taffeta dress with a white shawl, a long black lacy dress, a couple of long floral print dresses, fur-lined coats (fox) and 2 hunting hats. Note: the exact color names are NOT accurate but that should give you an idea of what’s coming up. I know it’s vague but I’m not gonna demand anything else from the snitch. I don’t want to spoil it for everybody, including myself. What makes "fashion" truly magical is to see the unexpected. Quite frankly, I’d rather just wait for an entire month to see everything online… element of surprise and all that.
PS. Asked what the general theme is and this is what the person had to say: "like an equestrian hunter in mainly different variations of either
patent/suede/velvet 6" ankle boots, theres also these knee high wedge
leather boots. there are some pieces that are feminine and the pants
that are more masculine."
