After Balmain...

Balmain has become hugely influential over the past few seasons. The silhouettes and finishes have popped up all over the high street - and a good thing too - Balmain charges about £800 for a t-shirt and a couple of grand for a denim jacket. I personally think it's pricing scale is more than a little obscene. Often you can see where the money goes with designer wares, but with Balmain it's just expensive for the sake of it...still, it seems to work for them and Alex Curran et al who actually spend six grand on harem pants. Last year I bought this homage to the Balmain S/S 09 collection, a great t-shirt with little studs all over it - much more comfortable and practical than walking around dropping and crunching sequins all day, but still sparkly enough to lift your mood.
