An Expression of Love...

Balmain is my ultimate favorite designer. I absolutely die for Victoria Beckham's structured, elegant, status defying frocks, drool over Stella McCartney's lady-like menswear and can't get enough of the comfy glam of Alexander Wang's T collection, etc., etc., etc...but Balmain is the master of bold shoulders, studs, gromments, acid-wash, distressed jeans, shredded cut-offs, thigh high splits, etc., etc., etc.
His S2011RTW collection did not disappoint...It made my eyes water and widen like a child on Christmas morning, enraptured by the studded, shredded, ripped and acidic couture. Can I just say that I love that his models were bared faced (or at least made to look like it) with dewy skin and bone straight hair? Well, I did.
Of course, as I said Balmain is my favorite designer. D e s i g n e r.

Never would I ever shell out tens of thousands of dollars...

Even on things as gorgeous as these. I'm much too attached (or detached) to reality for that. I'd rather just grab a handful of safety pins, kitchen shears, sandpaper, marker pens and get to work.

  1. Balmain do some amazing designs their latest collection was very punk influenced but as you explained they are super expensive. In the UK you were looking at £15,000 for one of their military jackets with the big shoulders.
