Zoom Shot: Balenciaga’s Barbed Wire

Photo: Imaxtree

After a resort 2013 collection full of sculptural ruffles, Balenciaga continued the motif in its spring collection, opening with asymmetrical waves on skirts, peplums, and sleeves. The looks segued into tweed separates before ending on skirts featuring a print that resembled both thorny branches and barbed wire. A nod to Kristen Stewart Snow White running through the forest to escape the Huntsman, perhaps? Click to zoom in on one of the skirts and see the tiny holes in the leather, as if the model got caught on an errant branch while fleeing.
