SMART PATTERN. The dynamic at Balenciaga is innovation in cut, the discovery of ways of structuring a new architecture of shape. The experimentation, which began with high-technological 3D molding of jackets and coats for both women and men, has begun an extensive process of recasting tailoring and couture in ways which are relevant to the way people dress in the context of today. In the Parisian tradition, it aims to celebrate high fashion elegance while making it simple to wear.
SHOULDER SILHOUETTE. Squared edge, exaggerated raglans or completely unpadded sleeve heads.
NEO-TAILORING. Formal tailoring metamorphoses into matching shirts and fluid trousers for all.
PROFILE SILHOUETTE. Silhouettes cut to be seen in profile include the new C-shape, super dramatic standup collars and one-seam dresses suspended from boned straps.
EASY-TO-WEAR COUTURE. Matching two-piece evening suits with draped, tied skirts are the alternative of vast volumes, elegant in movement.
