Balenciaga, fashion week

Balenciaga‘s Nicolas Ghesquière kicked off his Spring 2013 runway show with midriff-baring separates that set the sweet yet sexy tone for the rest of his collection. Pairing ruffles with cropped tops, barbed wire with lace and ounces of black and white, it was a high-contrast showing with an equally ample amount of drama. Always a standout in the accessory department, Balenciaga didn’t disappoint: Lace-up booties added to the collection’s sophistication and polish, while handfuls of spiraled gold rings embraced the label’s edgier side. Check out our favorite looks in the gallery!
