have you every realized that something is your favorite (insert garment, concept, or
love interest memory) embarrasingly after the fact? we could be exclusively referring to men here, not an uncommon phenomenon, but case in point: balenciaga spring 2013. i have no idea how i managed to ward off the infatuation for so long, but after regularly walking by the larger than life balencaiga facade on mercer, nicolas' farewell collection is confirmed as my all-time favorite. with the exception of the miu miu ss10 cats of course, but please, that collection deserves its own category. at any rate, those ruffles regularly send me swooning, as does the silvery peeling-paint-and-glass aesthetic.
snapshots: photos by your girl, outfit (inspired) by ghesquière. other balenciaga images via vogue, manoelcaralho.com, tumblr image gone collaged (originally posted by this tumblr,
reworked for reposted by this one!), and the official mercer street poster ad campaign (via touchpuppet). please excuse the shameless headshots, ya gotta do whatcha gotta do, ya know?
outfit: surface to air skirt, brandi melville top, vintage jewelry.
tunes: guest room by the national.
