Designer Spotlight : Balmain

Balmain is one of my favourite designers at the moment. I fall in love with quite a few pieces from each collection every season. I've seen quite a few people online saying Balmain is 'trashy' and 'trying too hard' but personally I love it and if I was lucky enough to be a designer it's pretty much what I would design. It's no secret that I love all things rock n roll, hence the title of my blog so Balmain is like a dream to me. The detailing is just stunning. I don't love all the pieces, some of the trousers I do think are a little tacky but the jackets are to die for.

The red jacket pictured below right is one of my favourites. I think it would look great teamed with black skinnies and heels. I think the key to these items is to wear something plain with them so the detail stands out even more.

Balmain has inspired me to pick up some studs and spikes from ebay and get customising. Although I'm too scared to do it to my leather jacket, I'm doing it to an old black blazer I never wear!

Thoughts on Balmain?


  1. well for one those studded jackets are siic, loving them. Very edgy <3

  2. Ah I adore Balmain too, the detail on each of their pieces is so stunning. I say embrace the DIY and go for it :)
