“Hey I just met you. And this is crazy. But here's my number. So call me maybe.”

 

THE BOOTY DRESS

You're looking for that perfect party outfit – the one that will make you stylishly stand out from the crowd? Say no more! Balenciaga has got the perfect number for you: this short-in-the-back-long-in-the-front Zebra print cocktail dress will do the trick.

 

LOGO HEADSCARVES

The headscarves were adorned with a 'Balenciaga' logo print in bold letters and reminded us of those cute Eastern European grannies that go to church every Sunday. Only here, they came with a little bit of sass.

 

MASSIVE LAYERING

We're not even sure if there are any appropriate technical terms that could be used to describe this Fall/Winter 2018 season's heavily layered outerwear. There was this denim-puffa-tartan-coat that made for a true eye-catcher – and let's not forget the animal-print-puffa-tartan-trench-denim-leather-hoodie one.

 

PSYCHEDELIC FLAVORS

Intense and acidulated colors were everywhere! As a matter of fact, the Swiss are renowned for their consumption of magic mushrooms. Demna Gvasalia is moving back and forth between Paris (where he works for Balenciaga) and Zürich (where he has recently relocated Vetements' headquarters). ‘Nuff said.
