So I know it’s been a while since the Balmain RTW ’13 collection debuted at PFW but I was absent during that time in the world of bloggin’. LOL! So I shall blog my thoughts about it now.
I love Balmain and the fashion house continued to impress me with there ever stronger pieces. Olivier Rousteing; the designer is said to have been inspired by Cuba and the 1990’s singer Sade and this is very much reflected in the collection.
Olivier Rousteing once again showcased his talents when it comes to embellishments. The pieces in the collection were the reflection of a true craftsman hard at work. The collection also saw Rousteing experimenting with volume and exaggerated silhouette. The highlight of the collection for me was the use of heavy beading, thick lace and the large hoops that the models were fashioning.
Below I have posted my favourite looks and details.
The details on the dress below I just LOVE!! I need this.
Fashion is the best way to express yourself and the Meadham Kirchoff collection does just that. Their Fall ’12 collection was full of imagination and there SS ’13 collection was no different! Full of fantasy, sparkle and imagination; I absolutely love it! On their collection they were quoted saying; “It’s about the dream of escape. It is a fantasy of opulence, decadence, glamour, and wealth.”
There are 2 pieces which I absolutely loved and I have posted photo’s below. Enjoy!
Monique Lhuillier most noted for her bridal creations; she designed Reese Witherspoon’s and Carrie Underwood’s wedding dresses to name a few showcased her 2013 Spring collection in New York. Her whole collection was just breathtakingly beautiful. The detail is just exquisite. I see both sparkle and lace! LOVE.
