Essentially all of Decrnin's brilliant designs are nods to Emmanuelle…after all it was she who first permeated his masterpieces into the pages of Paris Vogue who brought him the household status he's garnered. Voguette's are such wonderful missionaries, pulling nearly bankrupt fashion houses up by their blingy bootstraps.
Naturally she would be right beside him when reflecting over his latest collections. (And of course she's wearing the most chicly classic Balmain blazer while doing so.)
J adore his ensemble – the glamorous disheveled look of it all – the nonchalance. The overly long sleeves, the artfully distressed motocross pants, the perfect belt thickness and color. The leather jacket w/ perfect sleeves and details, All of the muted tones working together. That wide expanse of clavicle is mesmerizing, The tousled dark hair and deep eyes.
So then, I guess it's sacrilege if I say that I love the leather jacket but the pants and shirt look terrible! (I know I know… it's supposed to be chic but I don't find anything chic in pre-distressed trousers and ill-fitting tops).
I love the hidden stories your pictures tell. I didn't know who these people were until I read the comments and then all was explained enough for me to google more info. But your pictures always leave me wanting to know more. It's as if you have surpassed the need for profile journalism, in a way. Paddy
Just wondering. When will you ever come to Sweden to shot some nice pics of cool people?! We have them here to, the cool people that is, and we have the darkness as well as the pale winter daylight. Nice settings :)
He is SO Fricking Beautiful! Hot, sexy, cute, what a man! Someone else said it earlier, but I have to say int again, that I love when people got contradictions, as he does, he doesn't look like a designer, not in the stereotype way at least, he looks more like a rock star or a poet. And same with E.Alt, she is the most cool woman ever, she is such an icon for myself, as we are same age, I guess, and she shows that you don't have to dress in a certain way if you're not 25 anymore. Thanks Scott for having these wonderful, inspiring ppl in the same picture.
Sorry to be a bit of "cold water" on the parade here but this looks like the old "heroin chic" of some years ago. and those were not glamorous happy times. The pants are interesting though. The rest…ehh…
i think he looks extremely sexy but he played the grunge factor a little too far. the look would have been better if he'd worn a nice shirt with those distressed pants or vice versa, but then again, that is his style and he carries it well.
Well… what im gonna say is a plead… for balmain… Make those fantastic jackets suitable for men.. less soulderpads of course…. cuz i want one… even if its not that wearable… i dont care… make it… i buy it….
