What Is This Model Wearing At Balenciaga? Do You Know?

So. I just checked out the Balenciaga show and it’s… strange. Or, not my favorite work by the enormously talented Nicholas Ghesquière. But while I ruminate on the Fall 2011 collection, would you kindly have a look at this thing and tell me what it is?

Here are my ideas:

-A scarf woven from PVC rope?
-A vest made of bubble wrap?
-Nothing else.

And what’d you think of the collection, while you’re at it?

      It looks like some kind of flexible tubing… knitted… on pool cues? I bet this was fun to make.
