I never fell that hard for Balmainia the first time around. Tennis balls in the shoulders of jackets and destroyed denim? I've got a strong enough shoulder as it is, thank you very much, and I know how to put a cheese grater to good use. I've got to say though, the Balmain Resort 2012 collection has gotten me feeling a bit stir crazy. It's more grown up and refined. Plus, I know it's pretty simple but I love the shape of those trousers - they look a bit like hooves. Don't ask me why that's a good thing.
The simple clean lined jackets (especially the black one in the middle), the buttons up the side of the legs to the knee, the psychedelic mirrored prints, and slouchy simple t-shirts tucked in... so good. The only question left spinning in my head is which combination Emmanuelle Alt will be rocking in September?
