Happy weekend everybody! Have you heard the news? The news that Alexander Wang is taking over as creative director of Balenciaga?! What do you think??
At this point, it is still technically a rumor but Nicolas Ghesquière exits the house today, and although there has been no confirmation from Wang or Balenciaga's team, the official announcement is anticipated to come soon.
As much as I LOVE Alexander Wang, I'm a bit disappointed to see Nicolas Ghesquière leave. In my opinion his Fall collection for Balenciaga stole a little piece of my heart. His attention to couture details is also impeccable. And of course he is adored by fashion it girls from Kristen Stewert to Miroslava Duma.
Finally, let's take a look at the Alexander Wang and Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga's Spring 2013 runway shows. Both fabulous, and I can see the similarities: architectural elements, cutouts, strong black and white color palettes.
