>> INSIDER WIRE —Is Nicholas Ghesquiere feeling the pinch of Balmania?  Until this season when he switched to Hotel Crillon, he always showed in the Balenciaga studio — some suggested the move was prompted by Balmain's move to the Ritz.  His decision to go '80s (albeit '80s Yves Saint Laurent) for Fall 2009 has some responding, "Looks like the Balmain has made all the French directionals nervous, no?"  And perhaps the icing on the cake, his declaration backstage that “High tech is over.  And the clubbing," which could be construed as a dig at Balmain's club-centric aesthetic . . . no wonder if Nicolas is sweating a bit, considering all the hoopla at Balmain today.
