You can’t deny that neon is the biggest thing for Spring. There are many brightly hued pieces that will suit everyone’s personal preference. One store that has many pieces that will suit anyone’s taste is SSENSE. They asked us to style a pair of yellow Balmain jeans from the Spring collection and this is what I came up with.
I was getting a Ska/Tribal vibe from the jeans, so that is the route I decided to take. In a more feminine way of course. I paired them with an Alexander Wang Open Back White Silk Shirt, Dannijo Karmen Necklace, YSL belt (men’s), a Maison Margiela Ring (men’s), and the Theyskens’ Theory Black Aven Edison Heels. I kept everything neutral so the focus won’t get taken away from the jeans.
This isn’t the only neon piece from SSENSE. They also have accessories and shoes that you can see below, which all come in bright shades. You can get each item above by clicking the links to purchase at ssense.com.

Miranda Kerr was spotted taking son Flynn out for a walk in New York City, New York. She wore a Chloe pieced denim shirt with the still lust worthy Balmain zipper trousers. I just love this style no matter which color it is in, black or brown. The style is just so cool.
I also really like the Chloe shirt. It has something more than the classic denim shirt. Though I find it cool, I also find it to be on the edge of looking very 70′s with the patching. It works though, for me at least. Especially when you style it with sick leather trousers like Miranda did. What do you think of her look here?

The new Fall/Winter 2012 Balmain collection walked in Paris, France for Paris Fashion Week. For this season the collection was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor’s personal jewelery collection. The clothing came in rich hues and had the classic intricate detail that is true to the fashion house.
When I look at the details, it is just amazing. The etched velvet, the beading, the knit, quilting, and tailoring. That is one thing this fashion house will never get wrong. You can see the collection below.
I now see what Olivier Rousteing is talking about when he said he was taking Balmain back to its couture days. The clothing now looks in harmony with the price range. I do miss all the rips, tears and endless amounts of denim, but couture is the soul of the brand so that is where it should be.
The 2012 Pre-Fall collection had tons of prints, color and of course the classic glitz. There was also no shortage of leather. I think the collection is really great. There are quite a few pieces that I find amazing. The leather pants above are just everything. Trouser pockets, check. Leather, check. Inseam-zipper and motorcycle stitching, double check. My other favorites would have to be the printed pajama pants, all the jackets, and the black long-sleeve dress. I love the graphic at the waist. I would love to see that dress on Zoe Saldana or Kate Bosworth. You can see the full collection below.
