The new man at Balmain is no longer the young outcast. He has grown into one who enjoys more interesting details over the distressing that he coveted in the past.
This season, Olivier Rousteing went for an Asian influence. Some of the jackets were kimono inspired, while others were classic Balmain with exquisite tailoring. Two things that will always be prominent, are the leather pants and jackets. This season was no exception. When you thought this was just going to be another collection of just skinny pants, you see the drop crotch styles paired with Judo belts to help keep his inspiration alive throughout. You can see all the looks from this collection below.
Kim Kardashian headed to a taping of The X Factor to support her sister, Khloe, who is currently serving as a judge for the show.
Kim wore her Balmain Skinny Zipper jeans with a cream blouse and heels. She doesn’t usually repeat outfits, but she tends to wear all white/cream pieces with these jeans. I’d love to see her wear them with a bright color. You can buy Balmain online from SSENSE.com.

Even though I love ankle zippers, I am actually quite happy to see a pair of Balmain jeans without them, especially a white pair. It just looks really fresh the way she styled these with the muted colors and orange belt. Click here to purchase Balmain at SSENSE.

I really like Kim’s outfit, the detailing on the pants adds a nice texture and dimension to the monochromatic look. The other times Kim’s worn these pants, she’s paired them with white pieces, I’d love to see her wear them with a wine colored chunky knit sweater for fall. You can buy Balmain online at SSENSE.
