Bonjour. Greetings from Paris! After enduring in New York what perhaps was the most bitter winter I’ve ever experienced in my life, I’m happy to report that spring definitely arrived early here in Europe. I didn’t even get the chance to wear my fur coats in Milan during Fashion Week!
Anyway, I went to the Balenciaga store on George V to see what’s new and I picked up a few spring essentials. I bought a number of tops, a short-sleeved top with an asymmetrical hem is one of them, and also a few pairs of shorts that should last me all summer. However, this black crepe cocoon coat with four metal bar closures on the front is my favorite item from that afternoon’s shopping exhibition. I love a good coat and cocoon-shaped ones, as pioneered by Cristobal Balenciaga, are so easy to wear.
