Balmain Spring 2012 Ready To Wear CollectionWednesday, January 25, 2012
This collection came out September 2011 but I thought I'd do a post on it as I love the collection so much! Balmain is one my favourite high end designer brands alongside Alexander Wang, Givenchy, Celine & Alexander McQueen. However high-street wins all the time!
This was Olivier Rousteing's first Balmain show as Head Designer and he pulled it off very well. He played it quite safe by sticking to the key looks Balmain have secured for a few years. Some may find that boring and want to see change but I can't complain.What I love about Balmain designs are the beautiful embroideries and mosaic designs heavily featured in collections. I really like the use of gold in some of the pieces and how every piece has a sharp & clean look, really stands out.
