Alexander Wang’s Resort 2014 collection for Balenciaga literally speaks volumes, as Wang referenced the signature oversize proportions of the house for the collection. In a typical Wang monotonal palette of blacks and whites, the scribble print was also re-introduced this season, touching on the history of the house of Cristóbal Balenciaga. I found the silhouette to be really grown-up compared to previous collections in Wang’s design, and even so for Nicolas Ghesquière’s collections which were often a bling’ing fantastical confidence of colour and science. So it seems the brand may be transitioning into another phase as Wang is finding his feet at Balenciaga, we will keep watching this space.
Hit? the shredded plastic bucket hats and heels add texture to a fairly minimalist collection
Miss? Not loving the brief midriffs and up-top proportions… These won’t look good on anyone’s ab’s, not even Kate Upton’s.
