Nicolas Ghesquière continues his retro-futuristic explorations at Balenciaga, melding a bohemian theme with techno fabrics.

Ghesquière also draws inspiration from the airline uniforms founder Cristóbal Balenciaga designed in the Fifties and Sixties, updating them with stretch fabrics and magnetic closures.
