Balenciaga Fall Winter 2009 on Yoox.com

if you have been following this blog for sometime, you would have known i am a big balenciaga fan. their menswear pieces are hard to come by and just not many stocklists around. and even with several locations selling balenciaga menswear in london, buyers sometimes just do not stock the pieces that i want. hence i really love yoox.com, an online treasure trove full of past season products, some dating back several years too. it's like net-a-porter's theoutnet.com, but with menswear!

and what do i find this week:

pardon the really drab display. when you are paddling high end designer goods (outlet or not), photography and styling really sells. look past the terrible styling and you'll find an amazing padded quilted biker jacket, and a wool coat with zip details, both key pieces from balenciaga fall winter 2009:

the green quilted jacket is my absolute favourite from that collection, but i couldn't find one in my size in london, so i opted for the version in black, which i love so dearly, it's my favourite winter jacket right now. i opted for one size smaller for a really snug fit, but otherwise true to size is my advise. the jacket originally retailed for about £900, now at a fraction of the price, available online here.

will.i.am from the black eyed peas wore the black wool coat to an awards ceremony back in november 2009. and now the exact same coat made it's way to yoox.com! even more amazingly, the coat is now retailing for £308. if i remembered correctly, the coat originally retailed for £1,100+.

since i am nice enough to share where i get my balenciaga fixes, if you do see the above jacket on the left in size 38, also from fall winter 2009, available on yoox.com, please shout, yell, grab and do anything to get my attention. I NEED and have been searching for a l00o00ng time!

love outlet shopping, even more so if it's online!

  1. What the hell do the Black Eyed Peas look like...

    Manga characters who dressed in the dark? Just ridiculous...

  2. You're so right here. But you do have to be in luck especially when it comes to sizes. I managed to get that Balenciaga Pea Coat (2008 i think ?) from Yoox only last month (and those prada shoes with the trainer tongue).

  3. The first jacket and the red pants are perfect.

  4. That's one of the points Yoox has to improve on, the styling plus the choice of mannequins (i think some are female bodies but i may be wrong). Otherwise, you're right - Yoox is a treasure trove, you just have to have a keen eye spotting the right pieces.

  5. 440 pounds for a 100% POLYESTER jacket (the quilted one)??

    Yikes...way too overpriced for my blood :(


    Another food for thought, yes the photo looks terrible on Yoox probably taken under flat lighting conditions ...but at least thats how the jacket would probably look like in real life or in most light conditions. Wouldn't that be better for the end user?

  6. love that grey jacket to the left. i have this thing with diagonal zippers. i just wish they're not that thick coz it's quite warm here in my country.
