A Complete Look
It was reported this week in WWD that Nicholas Ghesquiere, the brilliant mind behind Balenciaga, made known to all fashion publications worldwide that the clothes from his fabulous Fall 2006 Collection will not be sent out for editoral as pieces-- meaning that if Vogue wants to photograph Gemma & Sasha in any of next season's clothes, they have to use the ENTIRE look, no styling, no separates. Even if they want to photograph a bag, it has to be shown with a COMPLETE ensemble from the "reference" collection, or only with other accessories from the line. It seems a little snobbish, but the clothes are so hot, I really can't disagree. I mean, can you imagine one of those fabulous hats paired with an ugly Chloe dress? Please. A big merci to Monsieur Ghesquiere for taking a stand against the paradigm that is the Fashion Industry.
