PFW Fall 2014: Balenciaga Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Balenciaga fall 2014 collection brought a variety of boxy, sporty ensembles into the spotlight. In many respects, the new line seems like a continuation of his spring 2014 collection for Balenciaga, especially silhouette-wise.
The designer unveiled several cool statement belted coats with a strong masculine flair, sharply tailored dresses with a modern vibe, many leather pieces with an edgy twist and cool accessories in versatile tones. Though dark versatile tones dominated, elements like exposed zippers and bright pops of color ensured the new options weren't overly somber. See more from the Balenciaga fall 2014 collection!

With this idea in mind, he brought a variety of stunning skirts, chic pleated dresses and even a few elegant gowns into the spotlight.
