Fembot Volume Resort... Nicolas Ghesquière unveiled his latest Resort 2012 Collection for Balenciaga. The designer showed lots of color--brick reds, aqua greys, as well as hints of lilac/lavender--along with the usual subjects of black and white. There was LOTS of VOLUME---an obvious nod to the Couture Master Cristobal Balenciaga. full Dirndl-style A-line skirts, to the knee and full billowing yet light coats, structured vest jackets and blouson "Bomber" jackets. Known for his skinny fabulously-fitting pants, Ghesquière, also showed "easy-breezy" jersey pieces and some very cute shorts he dubbed "Umbrella shorts". I especially LOVE those visor-hats! I need to get me one of those for my upcoming trip to Europe!! (I wonder if I can get an "early order" in?). Some of the visor-clad looks reminded me of some 60s-inspired yet futuristic Flight Attendants! The Fembot Balenciaga Girl will be spending her "Resort Vacation" in Berlin...or Prague in these looks instead.
