Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2007: First Looks

On Sunday morning at the Toronto Fashion Bloggers Brunch someone commented on how rare it is to see Ghesquiere's Balenciaga worn well off the runway. As evidenced by Miss Blanchett at the MET gala and, well, the mere presence of C3PO leggings in the spring show, many of the looks are not made for the average person (not to suggest Cate is average or anything...). Fall, however, brings us a collection of heavily street-inspired garments that may just up the label's wearability, at least for a season. From velvet blazers to kafiyah-esque scarves, could this new direction be a testament to Ghesquiere's versatility, or just a sign he's heading down a commercial path? Whether we'll start seeing the runway makeup on the streets as well remains to be seen...

I love those pants. They are in theory wear. Impossible to pull off in real life. The jackets and scarves will sell like hotcakes probably.
