BALENCIAGA BY NICOLAS GHESQUIÈRE & PIERRE HARDY
Leather High-heeled Buckle and Strap Sandals (black)
Structure and fluidity is the constant balance infused in Nicolas Ghesquière’s work. You can count on the designer hailed as fashion’s new messiah in the early 2000s to give power to femininity, strength to delicacy. Those high-heeled buckle and strap sandals were designed by the famous shoemaker Mister Pierre Hardy as he worked for the shoe collection at Balenciaga for the « last » 10 years Ghesquière spent at the historical House.
Through all the spring 2003 runway show, in a rigorous black or a soft powdered beige, they elongate the legs, ensure a confident gait and contrast with tiny dresses or high waist skintight pants.
