Balenciaga Fall 2012 Campaign Ads: Retro Futuristic.. Messy One

Shot by Steven Meisel, the campaign pictures a retro futuristic designs modelled by newcomers like Linn Arvidsson, Sophie Hirschfelder, Juliet Ingleby, Julier Bugge, and Anniek Kortleve. Last campaign was modelled by Kristen Stewart.

Balenciaga... however great the motorcycle bag is... hmmm how do I put it. I love retro style like Miu Miu, but Balenciaga retro aesthetic is a bit off for me. Baggy pants, missed shoulder lines, leather blend on the tops (which is very, very off in my eyes), plus the messy hair permed/curly hair and bare makeups. Anyone find this ad appealing? :s

I find the new season's bag collection as way way wayyy more attractive than the ads. Look at how beautiful these moto bags are! So neatly stacked together.
