Balmain Autumn Winter 2012 Collection

Today I had the pleasure of buying Balmain’s AW12 collection and for the second season running it blew me away. Filling the shoes of a previously successful designer is never an easy task. For Balmain, having Christophe Decarnin at the reins vastly improved and invigorated the French label who saw a transition at the hands of Olivier Rousteing. Entering his sophomore showing for Balmain, military garb inspired by Russian Imperial Army uniforms yielded some smartly tailored pieces that was set alongside some of Balmain’s more signature pieces including of course the leather division.

The jacket takes on its high-fashion aesthetic via dual, asymmetrical zippers that run the vertical length of its front panels. Quilted shoulder pads, and lower sleeve accents finish off the piece. Available at Cruise Clothing very soon.
