the instant you glance at one of these looks from balenciaga for this fall and winter, you would have no doubt in your mind that it is in fact very much balenciaga. i added in a couple from the mens collection as well so you know how to dress up your guy this fall. of course, balenciaga once again put an emphasis on cozy sweaters and chunky knits but this time teamed them with a patent leather-ish material. i kind of love the belt with the casual sweater-tied-around-the-waist effect. it brings back memories from elementary school when around the waist was the only place you can put your sweatshirt without losing it in the sandbox. and who says bright colors and color blocking should stop after spring or even summer?
