The spring/summer 2012 Balenciaga show was full of excitement both on and off the runway. Minutes before the show started, several of the front row’s benches started randomly collapsing! Among some of the big names affected by this structural malfunction was Anna Wintour, who was photographed looking anything but amused. Of course the fashion show must go on, and it was a fabulous one. With the front rows of guests now standing, Nicolas Ghesquière delivered a collection that is colorful, funky, and futuristic. The collection stuck with a theme of colors; golds, blacks, rustic reds. The designs were sharp and dynamic and luxurious silks and Taffeta gave the sporty, oversized pieces a feminine feel. But hands down, our favorite piece was a pair of shiny, old-gold-colored trouser pants which were seen incorporated into many looks throughout the show.
