    I thought the Balmain show had such force and exquisite execution, so many ideas and such fire and potential that I am sure in the next years we will see flawless shows and collections from its designer. It wasn’t flawless but personally I didn’t care, some jackets were too square and boxy but the ideas and the personality were there so apparent. Those black velvet trousers with Faberge pearls and the soft cashmere jumper were just breath taking. I just loved so much !! I really can’t wait for more, I was desperate to see Balenciaga and Balenciaga was such a disappointment and I was expecting Balmain to be crap trash and yet it was truly stunning imho.

    I am neither a Rochas or a Balmain fan, but the Balmain seems like it would appeal to it’s Russian clientele. Very Faberge!

    I absolutely adore this dress. The photo is amazing because you can really see the details in the dress.

  53. Abby

    This show looks so influenced by Rococo.
    On another note the third dress reminds me so much of this Velasquez painting, Las Meninas (not a Rcococo artist but the floral detail is so similar to the young bride’s in the center of the painting) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Las_Meninas,_by_Diego_Velázquez,_from_Prado_in_Google_Earth.jpg
    I wonder if Balmain ever took art history classes…

  54. Nina Papaioannou

    March 3, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    I am sure Balmain will be setting new trends again!!! I think I might love this chic edgy glam dress more than the rock chic leather biker jacket ! ?

    I know I’m a little late but I just had to comment on this collection! The obvious inspriation from Faberge eggs translate so perfectly onto the clothing. This is a defining moment in Olivier’s career, so masterly and refined. The new luxury era of Balmain has begun.
