Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013: Balenciaga and Carven herald the return of the suit | Hollywood yohana

Balenciaga Carven Suits Spring 2013

There is a whole generation that has never worn a suit. That is about to change. You know that when labels as influential and cool as Balenciaga and Carven pack their collections with suits, a major shift is in store.
It happened today at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013.
Nicholas Ghesquiere’s suits for Balenciaga were short-skirted and tweedy, or four-button pantsuits with high waists. Carven’s Guillaume Henry did structured jackets over A-line skirts with undulating hems.
There were peekaboo elements to both collections as well, with wide, midriff tops over ruffled skirts at Balenciaga and kidney and tear-shaped cutouts at Carven. Expect a skin story from every magazine next spring. But don’t minimize the impact of the suit.
