The look:
Nicholas Ghesquière’s intricately crafted collection was a masterclass in draping. Combining 1940’s glamour with sumptuous fabrics and powerful shoulders, the presentation was in keeping with Balenciaga’s luxury clientele. The 1980’s influence was emphasised through a story of bright animal print wrap dresses which, with their heavy shoulder padding, looked straight out of Krystle Carrington’s wardrobe.

Key pieces:
A parade of heavily draped pastel-hued charmeuse mini skirts was followed by strong shouldered chainmail knits, emphasising the collection’s attention to surface interest. Dramatic shoulders were introduced to slash-neck silk tops, while sari-inspired jodhpur trousers were juxtaposed against sharp evening-inspired tailoring.
