From the church to the bathroom Balenciaga’s got you covered. Wait, no. That’s not right. Although it is the message Balenciaga is sending for fall.
The Fall 2011 collection was architecturally minded, so the cathedral and tiled settings make sense, they are just incongruous with each other. If Balenciaga had chosen just one of these images, it would have been number one on our list, but together, it just doesn’t tell a consistent narrative.
But maybe it’s the difference that Balenciaga desires. Remember the ghoulish lurker in the spring campaign? He was definitely an outlier.
