ITS BALMAIN BABY

March 6, 2009 in Uncategorized by Andy

I, like most of you, ADORE BALMAIN.

I would wear absolutely everything Christophe designs and when I say everything, I mean it.

I have to confess, I was anxiously waiting for this collection to come out and the months I had to wait seemed long, let me tell you that.
Yesterday, when I finally laid my eyes on it (thanks to style.com) I fell in love, I knew I would do, but I wasnt WOWED.

Dont get me wrong tho! I LOVE the collection, but there is something about it that I have seen before (the previous 2 seasons of Balmain)
I see the same shapes (although, I have to say, I am SO into shoulder pads now), but the jackets have the same shapes we saw last season and some of the dresses too.
Its a little monochromatic with splashes of electric blue, here and there. We see leather, we see studs, we see sequins & big shoulders which we have already seen last season.

It is very Christophe and it has the modern BALMAIN Rock and Roll glam stamp all over it.
He just blew me away last season and I´m still completely obsessed with that collection, I will be for a while I think, maybe last season was a strike of genius and as much as I love this new collection, his last one will always be one of my favourites (SO FAR!).
What do you think?

Creo que tengo una ligera obsesión por BALMAIN, tal vez tu también.

Te juro que me pondría absolutamente todo lo que Christophe diseña y cuando digo todo, lo digo en serio.
He estado esperando esta coleccion por meses y aunque la espera se me hizo un poco larga, ayer por fin (gracias a style.com) pude admirar Balmain otravez y por mucho que me fascino, no me impactó, como la coleccion de primavera/verano.

No lo vayas a malinterpretar, no es que no me haya gustado, ¡AL CONTRARIO!
El problema es, que siento que es algo que ya habíamos visto antes (en sus colecciones pasadas)

Yo veo los blazers y chamarras con los mismos cortes, veo estoperoles, veo lentejuelas, y veo esas hombreras tipo 80´s (¡que por cierto me tienen loca! haha).
Todo es increiblemente estetico y perfecto, el único problema es que siento que ya no es novedoso, por que ya lo habíamos visto antes.

Tal vez es por que yo me obsesioné con su coleccion pasada y ahora todo lo comparo con ella.

Igual esta coleccion me fascina y probablemente me veras haciendo algunos proyectos DIY es un futuro, peor para mi, su coleccion de Primavera/Verano, siempre va a ser mi favorita (al menos hasta ahora).
