Sporty futurism was a dominant theme in Balenciaga’s spring 2010 collection. While it’s hard to believe that skin tight leather biker pants are “appropriate” for spring, I can’t deny that the overall collection was full of beautifully constructed clothing that was not about looking back, but about looking forward. There were a few 1960’s references, such as the short pleated skirts, and the mod dresses, but overall Nicolas Ghesquière’s designs seemed better suited for a boba fett than, say, Jackie Kennedy.

I think it’s safe to say that I have always been impressed by Nicolas Ghesquière’s collections. His designs are so avant garde and really set a standard for where the fashion industry should be headed.
