Balmain Homme Fall Winter 2012 Menswear
Under Olivier Rousteing's creative direction, Balmain Homme takes a turn for the more refined. Wear and tear is fading from the brand's DNA and in place is a new Balmain man whose sense of style exudes an air of modern sophistication with a touch of rebel attitude.
Spring Summer 2012 was about ranch boys but for the new Fall Winter 2012, it seems the Balmain collection is made for the young aristocrats and Russian military officers. Most noteworthy are the Napoleon style soldier jackets and waistcoats paired with a pair of the brand's signature ribbed panel biker jeans and boots. Lots of velvets add to the regal feel. Short cropped collarless jackets makes another statement and quilted biker jackets are a must have!
This is not a rocket science collection of innovation. But a highly desirable collection based on panache of french style, well put together but not trying too hard. I see myself in everything!
