Balenciaga, 2010

Released in 1968, 2001: A Space Odyssey served as a cap to the Space Age fascinations of the 60’s, as if to resolve the futurist existential questions, answering them with an enigmatic optimism of human transcendence.

Balenciaga’s Nicholas Ghesquiere has frequently referenced the work of Courreges and Rabanne (both Balenciaga disciples), tying them into the sci-fi pop culture of his 80’s childhood and the contemporary. Forgoing references of actual Space Age fashion, Ghesquiere has tapped directly into the ultimate expression of that era’s needs and dreams.
