Back to the past to recover one of the trends introduced by the great master of haute couture and shapes, Cristóbal Balenciaga. The peacock cut returns to our wardrobes and is presented as one of the main trends for this coming autumn-winter that you can wear now and get ahead of the rest.

The peacock cut is, as its name suggests, a peacock style bass. That is to say, short at the front and long at the back, as if it were the bird’s tail. A trend introduced by Cristóbal Balenciaga in the 1950s and which has been making a comeback ever since, both on the red carpet and in streetstyle.

The catwalks have already anticipated it, this cut will be a trend in almost all garments this autumn-winter. The options are many, from a much more aggressive cut, practically exposing the legs at the front and with a length that drags down to the floor at the back; to more subtle cuts that barely have any fall.

In addition, in this infinity of forms we find that they can also be with ruffles or with a removable tail, attached to miniskirts or even trousers. An adapted version of the slip dress is one of the proposals of the Spanish firm Koahari that promises to be a hit. Silk dresses with crossover neckline, side draping and a peacock ruffle at the hem.

Now… Why don’t you take a look at the best looks from Balenciaga’s haute couture show?
