Going For Gold: Balmain + Givenchy Gold 'Chain Mail' Vest
Get ready for 'battle' this coming Spring Summer 2010. Balmain propagates the art of glamourous warfare with their bling out 'glamourzon' party gear. While Givenchy's gold emblazoned muscled male warriors are sure to dazzle the night away.
If the boys are envious of Natasha Poly's Balmain 'Chain mail' gold vest, Givenchy makes an equivalent version for the boys which looks just as fabulous and probably lower in price. That Balmain piece is literally as 'precious' as gold, seeing that the price tag is a hefty € 6727.50 (without VAT)! Balmain did it again, overpricing their merchandise to the point of them becoming 'aspirational' and highly coveted. (BTW, the vest is made from laiton material, anyone know what is it? Seems like metal after gooling). This is literally gold you will be wearing with this amount to pay! I already see a 'inspired' version of the Balmain gold tank at Zara, so recessionistas can still get the look without suffering bank account meltdown:-P
Now I wonder if the Givenchy men's version can fit my slim frame since the brand favours muscled physiques which I am not ...sob sob.
