Talking fashion with Ghesquière is fascinating, particularly when he gets going on the precepts of Cristobal Balenciaga. In a conversation on Wednesday, he explained this season's research. "I don't know if oversize is the right term for that type of construction," he said. "But this famous, and for me, a very functional, concept of Cristobal is the idea of the space between the body and the fabric. The clothes float away from the body. It's one of the big iconic things of Balenciaga. The fluidity of floating is beautiful, but it is something else. An architectural piece floating around the body is very structural. I think it's something that Balenciaga invented."
