Kanye West was caught leaving Bar Pitti Resturant in New York. He wore a pair of army green Balmain Homme motorcycle jeans. It’s been a while since we have spotted motorcycle jeans. I still think they are a great style, being that they were probably the only new styles introduced in recent years.
At first I thought these were a pair from the women’s line, going by the ankle-zipper, but noticed that the fly folds over to the left so they are from the men’s line. It’s cool to see that many brands are starting to introduce ankle-zippers into men’s styles now. I have always thought they add some more versatility to jeans. You never know when you need a slit.

Kanye West was caught at the Wall St. Protest in New York City earlier this week with Russell Simmons. He wore his Balmain jeans with a white tee and plaid shirt by Givenchy. We haven’t seen him in these in a while. He seemed to be favoring his amazing light washed pairs by Levi’s for a bit.
I would like to see Kanye rock his leather pants again. We haven’t seen him in those for a while either. I thought he wore them really well. I think you can wear any trend by just mixing in some basics and keeping the palette muted. A guy wearing leather pants is already a bold statement, so simple is probably the biggest key note.

Here is one of the videos to correspond with the highly anticipated Balmain diffusion line, Pierre Balmain. It holds the Balmain punk feel with all the zippers, tight fits, and slouchy tops. I think this collection will do well. I can’t wait to see the still pictures of the pieces. You can watch the video above to watch Abbey Lee Kershaw and Our Mountain prance around the city city in the clothing.
The first Balmain collection under new designer Olivier Rousteing walked in Paris during the Spring 2012 season. The Matador inspired collection featured looks that were nothing less flashy than the inspiration itself. There was embroidery everywhere, tons of gold and even the return of denim to the line.
Something that Balmain never gets wrong is tailoring. Everything is just always cut so sharp and clean. That is what makes this fashion house so lust-worthy. I love the tribal printing on all of the tops and even on the pants (subtle detailing just amazes me). You can click through some of the looks below.
