I will admit that the Pierre Balmain line had me unenthusiastic since its inaugural collection, personally. It wasn’t the pieces themselves, but more of the way they were presented and styled that I felt wasn’t up to par of the brand itself and more of Balmain. To keep the explanation short and simple, it is the Cara Delevingne to sister Poppy Delevingne in my mind. Two completely different takes on fashion, but with intertwining pieces.
This season was a full 180 from what was. It is back to what I love about the brand that stood out, like the ’90s silhouettes and punk aesthetic. Everything from the suede jackets to the sequined tank dress to the leather pants and more, felt tough again and nonchalant. To say the least, I am a fan again. You can see the new collection below.
The moto trend was just kicking off again during this post here. Since then, many brands have been dropping their takes on the trend left and right. From luxe styles from brands like Balmain and BLK DNM, to budget friendly styles by BLANK NYC and Ditto as well as styles in between; there are styles for everyone at any price range to try out.
Moto jeans have made quite the return this season in many new takes. Whether it be simply embellished with zippers from Anine Bing, or full on padded details at the knees from J Brand and Hudson, to the classic moto styles from James Jeans, they have all released their new takes on the season’s top trend. From denim to leather, here are all of our choices.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was spotted catching a flight out of Los Angeles at LAX Airport. The model/actress pulled out her Pierre Balmain Zip Skinny jeans to pair with some IRO boots and a Gucci bag.
It’s great to see Rosie back in these jeans. They are one of my favorite pair of jeans that I have seen her in and, of course, because I am obsessed with bleached washes right now. Even with the strong details, I find these to be a timeless and versatile pair. You can click here to purchase Pierre Balmain from Shopbop.
