Balenciaga Addictude

It was already known that certain drugs were causing addiction, the groupies of particular singers could turn hysterical when they perceived the end of the ridge of a Tokio Hotel boy, some fashionistas did not hesitate to camp two days running to be the first to cross the threshold of a new store … but what we did not know is that Nicolas Ghesquière caused the same kind of reactions. Finally we suspected a little, but was expected confirmation …

Result of this micro scandal: enhanced security, as jackets are open access. It’s also not a bad idea, because in addition to protecting the Ghesquière addicts, this can be avoided in this shop on the list – which is growing too – of the victims of the London gang which did his shopping by night in designer boutiques…
