Balmain news

My respect for the French fashion house has witnessed new altitudes. I commend their decision to stray from expectations from the media and replace their creative director, Christophe Decarnin, from within instead of bringing in a famous designer. To allow a smooth and seamless transition between collections that would maintain the esteem of the brand. In line for this position is Olivier Rousteing who's worked in Balmain since 2009.

These stunner pieces speak volumes for the brand, its esteem and sense of self hood in fashion media. So does the hype over this silk tank "embellished" with cigarette burns and safety pins from their Spring '11 collection showcased in Paris last September. Selling for $1,515... And selling out as quick as the life span of the cigarette they would have used (I assume).

For style's sake, I've taken the time to pair the tank with lustry lazy oaf shades. What do you think?
