Balmain Fall Winter 2011 Finale

Balmain Fall Winter 2011 Finale

Here's a video I took of the Balmain fall/winter 2011 fashion show finale.

The crystal-embellished dresses were phenomenal and my view at the show was unbeatable.

Photos to follow, as always.

US$1,625? I'll Have 10 of Them, Please!

Nothing beats the pleasure I get from touching things I cannot afford. I'm sure you do the same. Don't lie to me now... liar liar your crotch is on fire! You know, you run to your nearest store by yourself, to see, to sniff, to touch, to hold, to try things you see in magazine spreads. Check out this t-shirt with holes from Balmain's fall/winter 2010 collection...

Balmain Jacket Spring Summer 2010

Balmain Jacket Spring Summer 2010

Everyone loves a good ol' case of schadenfreude. I know it's absolutely cruel for me to say this but I always beam with delight whenever I see hot diggity damn Christophe Decarnin for Balmain items on eBay. No matter what you say, it only means one thing: buyer's remorse! Walking out the shop door after experiencing the high one gets after dropping the plastic for seven grand is insane. When that high turns into a comedown, you just know there's a woman out there in this big, bad, pagoda-shouldered world, quivering, no, weeping, over her mastercard statement.

Balmain Paris HairXpression Hair Extensions

HairXpression by Balmain Paris Hair Extensions

I didn't believe my tranny friend in NY when she told me last night that her hair extensions are from Balmain. I thought she was bullshitting at first. There is nothing worse than a queen fiddlin' with yo' feelings.

She was serious afterall.

Rihanna in Balmain [PICS]

Rihanna in Balmain

I love Balmain and all but this Balmain-mania has to stop. First you've got Team Vogue Paris as in Emmanuelle & Co. sporting the goods fresh off the runway. Then you've got the boatload of fashion bloggers recreating the Balmain look for less with their bleached ripped jeans and now the celebrity brigade have joined the bandwagon too. There's Michael Jackson in that swarovski-studded t-shirt, Beyonce in that black Balmain jacket and now Rihanna in the denim military jacket. This is too much. Wayy too much. Perhaps it's just me but I feel like the universe is shoving Balmain down my throat. 

How does Rihanna (who, btw, is TOTALLY channeling Michael Jackson with THAT hair) make you feel?

Now this is what you call ferocity in the highest level. Here's Michael Jackson sporting a Balmain t-shirt from the fall/winter 2009 womenswear collection.

It makes perfect sense considering a lot of Christophe Decarnin's pieces were inspired by him.

During Paris fashion week, The Times UK posted a tweet that Natalie Massenet of Net-a-Porter thinks those Balmain t-shirts are gonna run at £10,000 a piece. Yes. For a t-shirt.

Ah well.

Life is a runway. Every day is a fashion show and the street is your catwalk. If you can't afford the runway piece, get the runway music instead. Christophe & Co. used "Don't Stop Til' You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson at the Balmain show. Enjoy!

Shop Balmain Spring 2009 Dress Dresses Online

Balmain's Five-Figure Dresses

Recession? What recession? Perhaps you should ask Christophe Decarnin that question the next time you see him. The House of Balmain, as you know, is currently going through a resurgence, thanks to the blessing of the ultra chic Vogue Paris team.

Anyway, some of Christophe's latest confections are now available for purchase online.

Strapless mini-dress (€15,574), tulle ankh gown (€15,574) and one-sleeved gathered and torn mini-dress (€15,314) all by Balmain.

I'd like to point out that never in the history of the internet I have seen CURRENT-SEASON dresses being sold at this price point on teh interwebs. I've seen other high-ticket items being sold online such as jewelry, watches, cars, etc but current season ready-to-wear?
