I want to go back to Paris!!
I’m addicted to this! Lana Del Rey (who I absolutely adore) is currently the face of H&M’s fashion autumn ’12 collection. H&M were recently voted 2nd best fashion brand beating the likes of Gucci and Cartier and just falling behind the luxury brand Louis Vuitton which came in at number 1.
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.
