Balmain has just walked in Paris, but designer Christophe Decarnin was a no show. I’m always interested in seeing what he gives his bow in. Paris has definitely had their fair share of problems this season. This collection was once again inspired by Glam rock, but the glamorous men’s side the genre, i.e. David Bowie. Balmain also got a lot more sleek and mellow with this collection with the help of Melanie Ward. It did have the usual short, rock sensibility, and of course leather.
Balmain also added a new style to their collection that has never been featured before in the past ones, a skinny jumpsuit. Another new addition to the fashion house is t-shirts that are not in a cotton material (one shown above). A great take on the usual cotton and drapes just like it. I’m sure Kanye will be sporting one pretty soon. I think the jackets and the dresses will once again have many ladies swooning, as well as the mini skirts. You can check out many of the looks below.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted going out to lunch with boyfriend Jason Statham to Joan’s on Third in Los Angeles, California. Rosie wore a pair of the new leather coated jeans by JET. I heard about these last week and couldn’t wait to see them as it is one of my favorite brands and favorite trends coming together. I heard that they are amazing and it is true. They have a really nice leather like sheen to them and they fit her amazing. Lucky Rosie…she got them before everyone else.
I also like the way that Rosie wore them here. I like that she paired them with the suede Isabel Marant boots and a wrinkled leather jacket. I love the mixing of the different textures. Her style actually is one that I am really fond of. Her last sighting would have to be one of my favorites of hers. She really does know how to dress when she is off-duty and looks presentable each time she is spotted out. These jeans are not available yet, but you can click here to purchase other styles by JET at Singer22.
