Balen >>  It all started out very minimal, very Balenciaga, with a few lovely white bubble dresses. Then, what's this?  Rocker chic tees emblazoned with "Devils in Balenciaga" and some lovely skinny black and white striped pants, reminiscent (but way too tailored) of a pirate costume.  Skinny suits in paisley patterns... asymmetrical lacy dresses, and then... oh, man, then.  Gee-orgeous rococo jackets that take you back to the days of the Sun King.  All of this, one collection.  Boy, it is an eyeful -- took me a while to process what I was seeing.  But the detailing is exquisite, especially on the rococo pieces -- to the point that this collection almost seems couture.  Nicolas Ghesquiere has achieved quite an impressive balance between the rebel, the minimalist, the opulent sophisticate.  He's done so well, in fact, that many are touting this collection as the best of the season.  I say it's quite good, but best of the season?  There's too many collections still to be shown to be making that decision. 

The rest of the collection can be seen here.
