Zee Fashionista: Nicolas leaves Balenciaga


Nicolas leaves Balenciaga

This here world of fashion we love is full of shockers. The latest is luxury giant PPR's announcement that Nicolas Ghesquière, the man who revolutionised Balenciaga as creative director for 15 years, is parting ways with the Parisian House.

The great surprise lies in the fact that with Ghesquière's influence, Balenciaga's incredible runway collections and accessories lines have received major kudos over the years, and even the PPR executives themselves were said to pleased with Ghesquière's performance.

And while we will miss the jelly he was to Balenciaga's peanut butter, I choose here to celebrate his hard-edged, geometric, and feminine designs with some of my favourite Balenciaga pieces.


When our patron saint of fashion flyness, Rihanna, released promo pictures in anticipation of her 6th studio album, "Talk That Talk", she took to wearing some cut-out flat Balenciaga boots from the 2011 Spring/Summer collection that I would still kill for to this day. Imma have to keep tryna kill for them considering that they retail for $1275. Quality, as we know too well, must be paid for. Riri's been hitting high scores with her style - lawd!


As the face of Balenciaga's new Florabotanica fragrance, Kristen Stewart is in fact one of Ghesquière most recent muses. Here she stepped out at the AFI Festival this past weekend in what is my favourite look from Balenciaga's latest collection - a tailored two-piece with a seriously sexy bra top. This is just one example of that Balenciaga sexy - chic, with Parisian sensibilities.

So Joan Rivers reckons that these Balenciaga printed pants that Kristen donned in Cannes earlier this year look like some kind of fungus or growth. And yes, if you look closely enough they do kind of look like something that might grow on bread that's been in a sealed container, in a dark room, for way too long...

But alas, I love them. They're what I like to call 'rhizopus stolonifer chic'. Yeah. Shoot me - I love Balenciaga!
