Who lives in a pinapple under the sea? Sponge Bob SQUARE PANTS! Balenciaga has been playing with this horrid look, being proportionately challenged for years. I began this critique with the Before-and-After-Pants years ago, we then saw fabric-wrapped cardboard attached to the front of garments, and this boxy curious look seems to be their aesthetic…I’m not a fan. Fashion is about wearability, the industry is about salability, and the notion that designers would overlook and blot out the silhouette, purposefully add a block of volume over the entire torso, is mind-boggling. The only way I could take Balenciaga seriously is if it was the pun of a Zoolander skit. What wasn’t grotesquely voluminous was uber tight alla Euro-gay.
