With all the shuffling and departing going on with the designers at major fashion houses, it has been interesting to see what talent ends up where. ( Does any one have a guess or info on who is going to head the houses of Lanvin or Dior? If so, please leave it in the comment section.)

Ever since I heard the news that Alexander Wang would no longer be designing for Balenciaga, my curiosity was piqued as to who would head up such a legendary atelier. And when it was announced that Demna Gvasalia from Vetements, would be the new artistic director, I could not wait to lay eyes on his debut Balenciaga collection. With Vetements recent surge in popularity, I was not alone.

Gvasalia did not disappoint, and the collection has only seen rave reviews.  When Tim Blanks, Business of Fashion, wrote, “The revelation of Sunday’s presentation was Gvasalia’s ability to translate the essence of Balenciaga’s couture into a ready-to-wear collection without diminishing its purity or its emotional charge. It had the rightness of something we’ve been waiting to see forever. And it immediately cast a giant shadow over the entire season,” he articulately summed up what we were all thinking (or at least what I was thinking).

I adored how every wardrobe base was covered, from the shirt, the coat, and the trench coat, to floral dresses, sweaters and business suits. My standouts were the pencil skirts and dresses with front kick-pleats. But since this is now and those are the future, I have curated a selection of front detailed skirts to tide us over!
