COLLECTION: BALMAIN MENSWEAR SS14

27 October 2013


 "the main thrust of the collection came from the clash of workers' overalls and mechanics' 
jumpsuits worn with tweed jackets that had a whiff of vintage chanel. only coco never wove 
hers with metal chains the size of bike locks, or, for that matter, appliqu├ęd denim on denim 
to create houndstooth motifs." - matthew schneier, www.style.com

i've always been more of a menswear lover, and this balmain collection gives me yet more reason to love it. olivier rousteing has really justified his position within the fashion house with this bold, well thought out collection. workwear has been reinstated with soft leathers, one pieces and multiple textures; not necessarily practical but, definitely, beautiful to look at.

without a doubt, my favourite piece from this collection has to be the leather overall (he definitely picked the perfect model for it too…) zips, waist detailing and straight quilting; it almost seems like effortless designing from rousteing. what's your favourite piece from this collection?

enjoy sunday while it lasts.
