Pugnacious Affectation: Balmain

September 6, 2009 at 8:13 pm (Business, Casual, Day to Evening, Luxury, Paris, RTW (Ready to Wear)) (, , , , , , , )

As the arbiter of the chic tough-femme look, the label has done an excellent job in their interpretation of the strong shoulder trend for this season. Pierre Balmain established the design house post-war in 1945 to return Fashions’ focus to glamorous dressing. After his death in 1982 the house struggled creatively & financially until 2002 when the appointment of Christophe Decarnin – formerly the designer for Paco Rabanne – brought new life to the failing label as a result of his slight alteration of the houses design direction. (1) Now, the label is currently a fave for celebs such as Beyonce & Kim Kardashian who have been spotted on many occasions wearing pieces from the collection. A perfect way to balance this silhouette is to pair it with a fitted top and bottom such as skinny jeans or a pencil skirt. But, if you feel like a line backer in the look then leave it at the store.
