NICOLAS GHESQUIERE swapped the showroom for the Hotel Crillon this morning to present his spring/summer 2011 collection for the house of Balenciaga. I really loved all the fresh and unique look that Ghesquiere has about fashion and this collection proved that. He doesn’t follow trends or aesthetics, he created them!

The Spring Summer 2011 collection has the designer’s signature futurism with rockabilly sartorial sensibilities, and the show had the fashion’s finest faces: Stella Tennant, Amber Valletta, Freja Beha Erichsen and Gisele.

Fortunately we saw none of the whimsical gypsy dresses we’ve been seeing so far for summer (even if I love bohemian style I was afraid there will be nothing more!!!). Ghesquière had played with the idea of shimmer, iridescence, reflection and refraction in amazing argyle-print sequin dresses but what I loved to die were hoof-like and six-inch-high shoes that boasted beaded fringing around the ankle and the bright fluoros combined with urban black leather.
