Balenciaga show certainly tapped into this: aside from the signature layered looks – and some new babydoll apron-style dresses – there came a finale procession of ball gowns which marked the re-introduction of Balenciaga’s haute couture history. A selection of shapes and volumes from the couture archive were here re-interpreted with the practical addition of pockets, and are available made to order.
