Well, at this point I’m not sure if this is either a Pre-Fall, a Main F/W or Couture show, or the combination of these, Vogue put it under both the Pre-Fall and Menswear ones, but I’m willing to go with the combination of all. Plus there should be no denying; it’s a combination anyway. It’s a big mix, which this time not made of a lots of collaborations, but more like different genders, ages and ethnicities. Plus different kind of attires from the office wear to the most sporty clothes, while still has the strong characteristic which Mr Gvasalia owns . And it’s pretty good, I have to say.
The designer says there’s no connection between his job here and Balanciaga, actually he can’t really deny it. But that’s understandable. If you have something in your mind, something which you’re obsessed with, then it will show here and there too. Like pencil skirts, puffer jackets, knee and thigh high boots/pants(?). This show has its more low-key, more monochromatic raw vibe all over it though, but the connection is obviously there. I think it would be a problem if there would be no connection at all, after all we’re speaking about the very same designer/mastermind here whose main goal is the reformation of the fashion world (which he is succeeding in btw).
Anyways, I’m happy to see that vintage jeans, pointy toes and puffer jackets are going nowhere because I love these trends and would like to see for a long time in fashion and therefor in my closet. What’s new though that’s the low waist pants on the last picture and I have to say, I’ve kinda missed it. Well, not for the practicality, as there’s no such a thing when comes to teeny tiny piece of fabrics, but then again when fashion has been about full practicality? I mean, ever. That’s right, never.
Is this really the return of the low waist? Are you happy for it?
