I promised id be cruel, that it wouldn't’t matter, Balenciaga was the first. From his phenomenal references towards the future, his outer worldly ability to manipulate fabric and the shapes that forms a lady. I could go on forever, but what we really wants to know is….did Alexander Wang, a man that built an empire based on the look that can only be described as a chic reference to the effortless 90s, how on earth those he take on a Titan that’s is century old fashion house BALENCIAGA? Well according to what went down in Paris, he did what Balenciaga did so well...but didn't take it any further. It seems this young designer was way to concerned with fitting and simply kept the signature shoulder silhouette, the neat little boy-big girl styling, …didn't’t go to crazy with the shoes? And stayed away from bold prints and colours. So like I said…he did Balenciaga, but held back. The collection at the end of the day WAS NOT BAD, in matters of fact it was brilliant. Fashion week in general has been a snooze fest and with exception to certain designers who have yet to show, Id honestly have to say this one is my favourite out of all of them…so far(come on Givenchy don’t fail me like the others have). I prefer it over Wang’s own collection and that’s harsh because I am a HUGE fang. But do I love it as a “Balenciaga” collection?
