BALENCIAGA F/W'11 COLLECTION

With Fall-Winter just around the corner, I thought of featuring Balenciaga's bag color palette and show collection, which showcases some of the more interesting pieces this upcoming season.  First stop, the renowned bag color palette of Balenciaga's cult pieces.  As with most F/W collection, this season's colors are more in the darker hues - a departure from last season's brighter tones.  Cool shades dominate the selection with the Sahara, Murier and Noir as some of the more note worthy hues.  Of course you'll have classic colors such as the Anthracite available this season; and for more pop, which I think Fall requires, you have the Pivoine and Vert D'Eau to choose from. Hopefully we still have the rose-gold hardware available this season, as it'll definitely help in adding more panache. For those interested to catch the couture collection, you can click on this link (Balenciaga Fall-Winter\'11 Show), which shares a glimpse of what is to come from the collection.  It's an interesting collection that mixes heavy and structured tops with soft billowy bottoms.  Personally the star of the collection for me would be the shoes.  My favorite of the lot would be these amazing geometric strappy heels in black and white.  Reminiscent of designs you would typically see from Givenchy, these shoes would definitely pop out of a crowd and grab your attention!
