Balenciaga A/W 2012This is one of my absolute favorite collections from Paris, every single look is fresh and futuristic like a 2012 collection should be. The most fierce piece was the grey PVC jacket (far left) which also comes as a coat. There were quite a few knee-long skirts, divided into three squares in different patterns, the red leather one seen above is hot. The model wearing it, looks a lot like Kristen Stewart who actually sat front row and as you might know is the new face of Balenciaga.

Since Christophe Decarnin's rock-chic S/S-08 show, Balmain hasn't hit the high note. The new designer Rousteing didn't succeed directly when he took over, but now when he's gotten used to his new position and also used Fabergé patterns as inspiration he truly made a collection worth it's former masters.
