However all Balmain's lovers can breath a sigh of relief; apart from keeping the embroidery and refined detailing which is Balmain’s trademark, the young designer Olivier added to the new collection some feautures of his own like floating apparels and cleaner lines.
I am completely fascinated by this 2012 S/S collection because of the gold patchwork, the studs and sun-bleached Native American embroidery. I also loved the luxurious black leather apparels, accessorized by thick gold cuffs and large belt buckles which are very Western-inspired. I am sure that most of the outfits that came down Balmain's 2012 runway show will be must-haves.
This one is the piece I love the most. I want it! The prints and embroideries are just fabulous!
