Balmain Pre-Fall


One of the first labels I ever really got into was Balmain. I was obsessed with their signature embelishments, mini dresses and amazing tailoring. Also, I was pretty astonished at the fact that Olivier Rousteing, who took over for the house in 2011, was only twenty five years old when he succeded Christophe Decarnin. That's a major accomplishment to be able to follow in the footsteps of Pierre Balmain and Oscar De La Renta, at such a young age. As I began discovering more designers and more brands, I kind of put Balmain in the back burner. However, their Pre-Fall 2013 collection brought it all back for me and reminded me why I  fell in love with Balmain in the first place. There's just no way you can't swoon over this.
