The impact of Spanish culture. Nicolas Ghesquière’s Balenciaga spring-summer collection adapted traditionally haute constructions to the street. Designer was inspired by the utilitarian influence. Nicolas delivered the practical elegance of the workwear of the fishermen and peasants. Models walked down the catwalk in jean jackets, exaggerated shoulder jackets, sailor uniforms, striped ottoman V-neck oversize tunic dresses, slouchy, asymmetrical cut T-shirts, patchworked dresses, boxy jackets, abbreviated shorts, waistbands, sleeveless tees, drainpipe-leg denim pants, vast-brimmed hats, trapeze dresses. Balenciaga woman looks chic and elegant in vibrant and abstract foulard prints, and modern colors, like melon, cyclamen, chartreuse mixed with tarnished silver, black and white.
