This is an anathema to me; the antithesis of what Balenciaga was founded on (e.g., the LEATHER!). I think AW was not the right choice of a designer for this line; hopefully they will see this before he totally destroys the brand.
Very good points... I'm sure this is especially hard for Bal "oldies" like you and some others here on this forum, CeeJay. I just got into Bal last year, and I was like, "Balenciaga City in nylon? Wha?!" when my friend told me she saw one online... you must have been like "WTH!!!!"
