For All the Good Memories -- Balenciaga Double Breasted Coat Made of Tissue Fabric
I waited in anxiety for 6 months for the Balenciaga fall winter 2011 menswear release. I was anxious because the spring summer 2011 collection was a huge disappointment and has been heavily criticized. As the menswear line drifting from its ultra futurism to whatever the spring summer is, I feel desolated.
I guess Nicholas Ghesquiere, still my hero who's taking the helm of Balenciaga, is just too busy with his flourishing womenswear. The double breasted coat is the only piece I got from the current fall winter 2010. The stiff tissue fabric makes the shape of this coat an icon of Balenciaga's minimalism. I waited until it's 50% off and was surprised that many of the outwears were still available in my size. They usually just fly off the shelves as soon as they arrive. I assume sales has already been affected by the poor design. Please let the coming womenswear show be a shot in the arm!
