Now & Then: Joan of Arc

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

If Joan of Arc were still alive, she'd be wearing Balenciaga's Spring 2008 Collection.

Joan of Arc's life was remarkable. Born a peasant girl in France, she ended up leading the French army to several victories during the Hundred Years War. And she did all of this when she was still a teenager. Balenciaga's Spring 2008 collection gives off a very strong warrior feel, with it's structured dresses (reminiscent of armor) and gladiator inspired lace up boots. I think we need more girls in the world like Joan. To see the rest of the "Now and Then Gang" go here
