Best of: Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga

Unbelievable! Nicolas Ghesquière, Balenciaga's creative director, says adieu after 15 years of career in the aforementioned French fashion house. 

The very talented designer, known for his unique ability to play with volumes and textures, gave Balenciaga a new direction with innovative silhouettes and color palletes, combining hard-edged and feminine aesthetics, modernizing the house image and turning it into one of the most prestigious and coveted brands by celebrities  (remember the giant city tote, it was everywhere!!!) including Salma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristen Stewart, the face of Balenciaga's latest fragrance Florabotanica, which was inspired by S/S 2008 collection.

I know two things for sure: first; Ghesquière's successor is going to have very big shoes to fill, and second; this is not the last thing we will hear from Nicolas Ghesquière, a fashion designer as talented and creative as he is, doesn't come by very often, rumor has it he's preparing the launch of his own label (I will keep you posted).

Let's celebrate Nicolas Ghesquière career in Balenciaga with a look back at his greatest collections. Enjoy!
