Balmain, a collection/brand that I would’ve gave my left testicle for last year/season. Fall Ready-To-Wear 2012 was simply superb, fabulously flawless and everything I was craving/needing from a designer. It was rich, classy, embellished , modern, vintage-inspired and youthful all wrapped in one. That was Rousteing second season as creative director and he definitely set a tone.
But we aren’t hear to talk about his past collection lol Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 is probably going to be one of the most speculated, criticized collection in my opinion. It’s a totally different feel/vibe this go around it’s not all about the divine, sparkly things in life. It’s very modest mod, sticking with very unique styles of jackets and “professional”color scheme with a inner city twist. Some say it’s bleak, boring and leaves you searching from more. And I honestly can say I agree. Bleak, dull, dry is how i feel during the winter, pieces that i can transform into day in night pieces are quite valuable and less is more. Plus, i love the emphsis put on the coats, jackets and blazers from double breasted, fur to fringe with stunning coat you can’t ever go wrong.
The collection was presented/streamed digitally through www.digitalfashionshows.com free of charge during New York Fashion Week on Feburary 8th 2013 at 9 a.m. est. and it was amazing feeling to actually attend/virtual attend one my favorite designers fashion show and not get the information through a third party and actual designer himself with access to the run the show, exclusive style notes and images.
