The Autumn/Winter 09/10 menswear line from legendary design house Balenciaga is sure to please fans of the label’s signature innovative style. The collection emphasizes strong, clearly defined silhouettes on heavily-constructed, architectural pieces. Suitably for winter, the line has several outerwear options, and utilizes a more restrained color palette on many, such as a dark olive quilted jacket and a gray wool topcoat with a tapered standing collar. As is expected, though, vivid colors do pop up throughout to punctuate the range with items like their take on a yellow-accented letterman jacket and a pair of bright red pants. The finer details are always an important part of Balenciaga clothing, as well. Here, pockets are placed above the knees on the front of pants, a modified pea coat has hidden buttons and a trench clasps in front with a built-in buckle. On several pieces, sleeves extend over the knuckles in a woven pattern that gives the clothing a stand-out, armor-like effect.
