People keep saying that people are buying this but who? I mean, yes Vogue Paris wears his stuff (for free) and I see the stuff on NAP. But I think they are ordering so little (and only in one or two sizes) that it sells out quickly (I wouldn't imagine they carry more than 5 pieces of a certain dress). Is it Russians or Middle Eastern buyers? Because I have a hard time believing they are making a genuine profit off of this. Then again the profit margins are so high because of the inflated RRP

This is like a joke, and the price tag is the punchline.

What the hell happened? I mean, Balmain was always tacky and loud and even a bit vulgar, but this? This just looks ridiculously ugly, and cheap to boot.

I keep thinking and thinking. I cannot come up with an insult that would do justice to this mess.
It gave me a good laugh, after all. And it's only an hour till Nina Ricci...

Meg, I agree, I wonder the same thing. I was on Browns the other day and noticed that a Balmain cotton tank (not even any kind of special blend of cotton) from last season was over $2,000.00. I mean... I'd REALLY like to know who's buying this... not only for how bad it looks but for how INSANELY overpriced it is. Rodarte's knits were about the same cost as a Balmain tshirt.....
