Balenciaga, the young woman ultra keen brain and technical innovations from the latest collections of the brand in Paris this season gives way to a confident young lady herself, needing very little tricks to appear as universally cool chic.
Taking black and white classic aura, Nicolas Ghesquière opens his show spring / summer 2013 looks dramatically sharpened, where sleek sexy and glamorous tailoring draw some looks if not revolutionary, at least effective.
