Balmain Presents Another Edgy Collection For Spring


There was a moment that when I saw a Balmain look strut down the runway, I used to feel an intense excitement. The leather, studs, that certain edgier appeal used to appease me.
Now that the peak of the 80s’ boom really came to a closure, what used to be a coveted label, isn’t anymore. What once was a yearning for their idea of the military trend, now transformed into dust. Extremely beaten from the constant replay of trending looks, I cringe at their Spring 2011 collection.
Was it the usual studded jacket? No, it must have been the leather cropped pants. I know; it was that same, old edgy demeanor. Nothing original, just an edgy mess of more leather, studs, and rock ‘n roll.
In addition, to lost feelings, Balmain’s Spring collection shows the steep downfall of a fad. Maybe Balmain can revive themselves in the future.

  1. Completely agree – the collection is nothing new they’ve simply recycled what they’ve been doing for their last few seasons! I mean, would anyone ever actually wear what this model is?!
