BALENCIAGA BY NICOLAS GHESQUIÈRE
Silk Ruffle Detail Flower Print Dress (multi)
The years French designer Nicolas Ghesquière spent at the historical House of Balenciaga are truly iconic ones, as he managed to infuse the brand with a sense of relevance and modernity. This printed silk dress, which evokes the carefree attitude of the 1970s, is made contemporary through its use of a contrasting front panel, which plays with hybridity and the idea of the dress as a top. This level of abstraction is typical of Ghesquière’s work for the brand.
