Describing the Balenciaga RTW 2009 Fall collection, Nicolas Ghesquiere simply said: “It’s Parisian”. Hotel de Crillon was the place chosen to host the event, and the atmosphere was exquisite, chic and highly fashionable.
When talking of the latest Balenciaga collection, the word is, no doubt, sophistication. Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquiere managed once again to combine couture with a special sense of reality that made fashion critics saying that the collection is “wearable” and “money in the bank” – in a very flattering manner.
Balenciaga RTW 2009 Fall shoes are all about the soles, as the sole is the most emphasized this season. Most Balenciaga shoes are, this season, continuous with the platform trend for this season, in a very distinct manner.
Nicolas Ghesquiere imagined a shoe with a unique platform and a unique profile, due to its rounded top of the heel. The Balenciaga RTW 2009 Fall shoes seem pretty comfortable and easy to walk in, despite the high heels, probably because the sole is made of rubber.
Everybody seemed to love the Balenciaga Stingray and suede sandal as much as the booties, the suede cage bootie with suede sash or the knit jersey bootie.
