I don't care how repetitive Balmain is, this looks GREAT!! Love everything and can't wait to see the HQs.

Where have you been when there were holes on shirts ? This is Balmain. It's not trashy. It's rock chic style.

I was not saying that that is ok. I was saying that if something doesn't look classy and expensive it doesn't mean that it's trashy . This is Balmain aesthetics. And I am not really a Balmain girl ...and I am not much into this kind of style, but Balmain as a brand I like this collection. I just hate when people come here and comment without knowing history of a fashion houses

If you want a similar tank top to the one in post #31, just get it at All Saints, for $55.00 american.

That said, i've never minded Balmain's rocker chic aesthetic, I just think some of the pieces are WAY too overpriced. The blinged stuff deserves the higher price tag, but not so the holey Ts and scruffy pants (which I like but which I can't pay that much for).

What a let down from an amazing Fall/Winter collection. Back to trashy!

In my opinion, Balmain is not so bad even though it is a bit over-the-top sometimes. I don't think his clothes should be worn head-to-toe. He makes great seperates, but if you wear Balmain leather pants with a Balmain top and a Balmain blazer, you'll end up looking like some clown. This collection is no different. There are great pieces, but thrown all together, they look messy and a bit trashy.

What's really "amazing" to me is not the clothes, but how he can still manage to show after all these years of absolute **** (for lack of a better word). I can understand 3 or 4 seasons, but we're talking 3 or 4 years here now..

Bo-ring. Rock & roll is what we expect from Balmain, but this looks like Ke$ha woke up in some ditch covered in some random dude's leftovers. So she had to find some safety pins to keep her act together. NEXT!
