Balenciaga shell back coat.

I can't decide if i love or hate the shell back / egg silhouette coat for men that Balenciaga did for fall 08. On the one hand its so nice to see boundaries being pushed, the freshness, the originality is so seductive; but on the other hand I just don't know if you average Joe can make this work. But then a Balenciaga coat is not for the average Joe. Can even the most fashion forward waify androgynous slimane-esq model boy thing pull this off?
