Designer Alexander Wang left Maison Balenciaga.Today,02.October 2015,he unveiled his last collection designed for the Balenciaga House.Wang will now focus solely on his eponymous fashion house based out of New York.“
Back to Wang’s last Balenciaga Show: it seems that his swan song was the freest of any of the collections he did for the house, and the most tender.
„When you know it’s your last anything, you say, ‘Let’s take a risk,’ what do you have to lose?” Wang said backstage. “At a house that’s known for innovation, I thought, ‘Let’s think about it the opposite way, let’s think about fabrics and shapes that feel supple and simple, but approach them in an artisanal, couture way.’ ”
Ivory silk-satin dresses streamed in ruffles, while white feather garlands were wrapped and draped and appliquéd on layered tops, smocked cotton summer dresses and playsuits. Elsewhere, there were beautiful scoop-back, finely knitted wool slips with embroidered lace inserts; sumptuous matelassé jackets and lace hotel-room style slippers, all of which glided out on a soft, dusty pink carpet beside gently rippling water installations. Every look was a dreamy shade of white, from the ruffled slip dresses to the low-slung trouser and crop top pairings.
