The problem is there's nothing special about it. I mean you could buy very similar jeans, coats etc - probably at a relatively lower price - and could style the whole look on your own.

^is that a problem? I think it's great that the style and clothes are simple. I would of course not buy those things, but it's easy -like you say- to style it yourself.

Yes, actually it's not a good thing. I'm not saying every pieces should be recognizable but in this case everything is too simple. (Sophistication is another issue...) This collection lacks of that little extra that would make me want to buy those clothes so bad.
All in all I hope it gets better...

Someone had to present a collection more devoid of content than Balmain (women) and he was just the person to do it.

is this collection actually being produced? is it carried in the paris boutique? do retailers actually sell this stuff?

while i'm definitely a fan of his work on the womens' side, i'm wholly confused about this collection. who exactly is the balmain menswear customer? to whom is this meant to appeal???

while i'm not understanding the excitement on the men's side, the pricepoints aren't unusual for designer wear. leather jackets CERTAINLY go for more than that -- the balenciaga bomber went for $3k+ six years ago. the teeshirt price is a bit high but not unheard of. the jeans are kind of high, but tom ford jeans go for $1,000/pop as well.

does luisaviaroma.com go on sale? i'm suspecting that these designs won't sell out at regular price.

the thing with this collection is that the presentation looked absolutely ordinary... but then you see them styled in a certain manner in editorials and such and you really end up thinking that they do have something special.
the jeans i don't like so much, hoods are not my thing, but there ARE some lovely cut jackets that i love!
i wish he had done something bigger with this. like some presentation of reworked slimane-ish attitude, more on the 'luxe' side, extravagant kind of like his womenswear is with disco babe and eurotrash attitude... it's best when you are decided to say you hate it, yet you're still terribly attracted to it.
i hope to see some of this in the Paris store this summer maybe just to take a look :p
