result: worth every bit of your attention!
Filling in the shoes of Nicolas Ghesquière and Cristobal Balenciaga - who was named by Dior 'the master of us all'- is no easy task but it seems that Alexander Wang is up for the challenge as his designs for the fashion house's fall 2013 lineup are oh-so-chic.
Balenciaga is a label known for its surprising take on femininity and it seems that the 29 year old high-end designer captured the essence of the label with his creations as they look classic yet ultra-modern all at once. With strategically placed lines, the new collection conquers through its sophisticated yet minimalist chicness brought by both separates and dresses, so should we be surprised to see these outfits on some of the world's most stylish women later this year? Definitely not as each design is exceptional and worthy of the label it bares!
The Balenciaga fall 2013 collection debuted with variations of the fall season's must have: the coat! From classic, masculine line coats to short sleeve waist enhancing coats and signature cape-boleros which with Balenciaga wowed his fans back in the day, the collection featured every coat style that's hot today. The designs that followed seemed to display elements inspired by uniforms, mixing and matching black high up the waist skirts with tucked in architectural detail white shirts, combos that impacted heavily the collection due to their powerful, statement style, however the designer didn't risk featuring more than a couple of designs following this risque style and balanced the collection with chic cut-out dresses that revealed the back, the ribs or the shoulders, thus infusing a bit more sexiness into an otherwise neat and relatively somber collection.
For the ladies that want to embrace a chic, sophisticated, neat yet modern style, Alexander Wang brought designs created through the fusion of soft, feminine and luxurious fabrics with the powerful visual impact brought by impeccably tailored trousers paired with fur vests and coats, stylish maxi and midi dresses displayed in monochromatic or printed fabric or through the use of skirt separates cut after vintage-inspired or modern patterns that looked absolutely faultless.
Although the designer got stuck on an achromatic palette using just black, silver and white in the lineup, the elegance of the cuts gave the collection a totally luxurious and modern feel, so browse through Balenciaga's fall 2013 collection and see which patterns cause your heart to skip a beat!
