geeking out: star wars x balenciaga

"Commitment" is definitely the adjective I would give Balenciaga head designer Nicolas Ghesquiere after reviewing both his spring and fall collections back-to-back. 

In September, Ghesquiere fitted his models in shapely, futuristic silhouettes & has continued his space ball-robo theme with an 80s twist for Balenciaga's fall collection [presented on Sunday].

And although the designer can do no wrong in my eyes, I couldn't help but feel a slight inkling of "deja-vu" from younger years when I was going through the lines. & that's when it hit me...

...Star Wars

Collections are meant to tell a story, and this one just so happens to remind me [pretty accurately] of Sundays spent trying to figure what the heck was going on in Return of the Jedi while my dad & brother spoke Ewoke [...kidding]. So, I've dedicated an evening of matching up pieces from Balenciaga fall & spring 2012 with some of the Naboo's finest. 

Tell me I'm wrong.

May the force be with you.
