What happened to the images that leaked months ago? I remember seeing snakeskin shirts, dhoti pants and a beautiful shrunken blazer..

This is just.... a nightmare.

I wish he had done more to translate the womenswear aesthetic for the mens collection: sexy, glittery, borderline bad taste. Or the masculine equivalent of that.

I guess what he's really saying is, girls like sequins and men are slobs.

I guess it's hard to translate the things he can get away with in the women's collections (the borderline bad taste stuff that in fact is just amazingly beautfiul and funky) into the mens so he just had to play it safe. Just a pity he played it WAY too safe and like most ppl have said this stuff doesn't look expensive at all, it's all stuff that can be gotten elsewhere

These don't even deserve to be given the name balmain, uninspiring pieces that could have been come up by gap or chevignon.

the question is... what did you all expect? sequined cocktail dresses for the man too?
no kidding... he just did a line for himself, what he wears and what he likes... jeans, tees and blazers! (there's a couple of nice jackets actually)
anyhow, if they did it to have an equal to the balmain girl, i think this is a much better work that the same attempt they've made chez givenchy

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.
Karma! That is exactly what i was thinking.... but you were able to write it down in a more thorough way haha

Well, the comments that read "hideous" and "so bad, terrible" were what I was referring to...And you just reiterated what I already said, which is that the clothes are boring and uninspired
