Balenciaga t shirt Ghesquiere Editors Pick: Balenciaga Wave Sleeveless T shirt, $285

I initially didn’t believe this morning’s surprise news that Nicolas Ghesquière is leaving Balenciaga after 15 years.  I googled, skeptically, until I reached the official press release which confirmed it. Now I feel terribly nostalgic. I’m sure the future looks bright for both Ghesquière and Balenciaga, but let’s have a moment for their beautiful history together: the aviator jackets; the skinny pants; the Fall 2006 collection with tweed suits and equestrian-inspired hats; the paper doll-like exaggerated silhouettes of Spring 2008′s floral mini-dresses—perfect updates from the voluminous archives.

Then there was Fall 2012, with its array of immediately covetable irony-tinged sweatshirts and T-shirts. Ghesquière’s Spring 2013 collection—which the designer termed “the most sensual collection I’ve ever done”—was another triumph: asymmetric skirts, sculptural ruffles, and pantsuits paired with modified bras.

Stay tuned for more news! Check out our top 20 favourite Spring 2013 Balenciaga looks. Your faves?

About Laura deCarufel

I handle the style section in the magazine and online, which means that I spend my days thinking about beautiful clothes and beautiful people and all the crazy, creative things that happen when they collide. I've been a dedicated follower of fashion since grade 8, when a pic of Linda Evangelista in a crushed velvet pantsuit (!) sparked my fascination. My current top style moment is the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany's - Audrey Hepburn on Fifth Avenue at dawn, wearing a long Givenchy gown, looking impossibly elegant as she delicately eats a croissant. French fashion and french pastry, two of my all-time favourite things.
