Summer fashion trends from the Balenciaga Resort 2009 collection signed by Nicholas Ghesquiere.
Nicholas Ghesquiere took the Balenciaga brand to another level, when creating the Balenciaga Resort 2009 collection. It's amazing how he succeeded to mix two elements so different from each other, as he did it here.
Ghesquiere imagined a collection that looks both hard and soft, using fabrics, various elements in a dazzling way. His collection was extremely graphic, mixing soft elements with harder and tougher ones.
As a visionary designer, Nicholas Ghesquiere finds it hard to choose, so the easiest way is to mix. No wonder that in the Balenciaga Resort 2009 collection we can discover a sort of nineties minimalism - painted jeans, layered tops, a refreshingly simple cotton suit.
Balenciaga maintained that ultra-chic and feminine posture, using paired skinny pants with draped and twisted tops, silvery skirts.
This collection has it all - corset-like top and semi-flow pleated skirt, swan dresses, body hugging overlapping layers, and demure neckline.
