Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2014 :: “Techno-Couture”

With Alexander Wang as ringleader, the Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2014 show really appeals to the senses. This is what design and forward thinking fashion are about, starting January 2014 off at an exciting and progressive pace. A fusion of sporty details, crisp tailoring and futuristic silhouettes result in unlikely combos that add a welcomed twist to tradition. Pixilated prints, snowboarding inspiration, scuba inspired zips on coats, statement collars reminiscent of wetsuits and oversized cocoon shapes give way to his “techno couture” collection, not to mention the chunky Balenciaga trademark knit, woven out of unlikely fabrics.

If all of this wasn’t enough, the models were flanked with screen projections of themselves whilst towering over glass tiles with breathtaking forest foliage underneath. Techno-nature meets techno-couture. Inspiring stuff.
