Balenciaga's S/S 2009 Pleated Metallic Jackets.

The orgasmic pleated metallic jackets from Nicolas Ghesquiere's Spring 2009 collection for Balenciaga are finally being sold on various designer websites. The bold shouldered jacket is definitely a key item this season for who ever wants to instantly update their wardrobe. The Sci-Fi inspired piece is one of a kind and retails at over four thousand dollars. It of course costs a pretty penny, but one would think it would be sold for a higher price. Considering last season's Oriental inspired, hand-worked jackets' prices were soaring in the dangerously expensive ten-thousands.

Balenciaga Pleated Metallic Jacket - £3,260.00 ($4,772.64)

"Dark multi coloured pleated metallic jacket.
The narrow pleats sit vertically over the jacket.
Round neck. No fastenings. Long sleeves. The hemline falls to the hips.

Blumarine Spring/Summer 2009 Ad Campaign

For the second season in a row, top model Natasha Poly will be the face for a Blumarine ad campaign. This spring campaign is Photographed by Craig McDean and styled by Joe McKenna. Although the campaign is beautiful, it is a bit peculiar. When you think Blumarine, you tend to picture femininity, flowers, and softness. Poly looks very aggressive in her posing and facial expressions, and the make-up accentuates that. She is a bit too harsh for the image the house is known for. Although it would of worked if her hair was down and the posing was kept softer. Blame the stylist I guess.
