spring prêt-à-porter: balmain, paris
by Jeremy Danté
it’s rockstar chic for balmain this season on the runways of paris fashion week. the usual suspects were cast for the show with daria werbowy opening & walking alongside ana selezneva, anja rubik, carmen kass, sasha pivovarova & isabeli fontana. i love the rugged elements seen in design from the collection; the look of tarnished americana was a theme of this seasons set. industrial punk details were seen in the collections use of safety pins, red & black; as well as the use of metallic & stained pattern prints. a clear vision presented with a well executed style direction. glamorous, raw & unbearably chic.
