Are these really the images their PR/Sales let out? You'd think they put a little more oopmph in to spruce up the clothes a bit. Totally anti-climactic.

I don't understand how they're going to market this. You could find those pieces in ANY store. Those jeans, jackets and hoodies are nothing special or interesting and I fail to see why someone would be willing to pay $$$ for pieces which you could a) somewhere cheaper and b) somewhere more interesting.

Besides that; its boring and pretentious. They're clearly using the heritage of Balmain to extort customers into buying this!

I don't like it... I think that the way that he works with jeans is just successful in womenswear.

I do'nt even want to ask how much they are selling these pieces for.. some of it is nice I think, but you could get it elsewhere for 20% of the cost..

Personally, aside from the some of the jeans, I don't see anything hideous about the clothes. I think for Balmain, we were expecting something different, although I'm not quite sure what. I couldn't imagine anything resembling the women's line for men....I just see it as being very boring and uninspired, but certainly not horrible.

^ I don't think anyone hates it because it's horrible looking. I think the general consensus is that this stuff is so basic and uninspired that it doesn't belong on a runway.

There isn't any design present whatsoever. The jackets aren't interesting and certainly don't look like they cost as much as they probably will. The t shirts are just that, t shirts. And no matter how many little extra seams you put into the leg of a pair of jeans, they are still jeans and shouldn't be the focus of a Paris fashion collection.

The fact that this is Balmain, and the prices are bound to be ridiculous only makes this pathetic display of lazy styling even more offensive.
