Paris Fashion Week: Balmain

THEY say French is the language of love and yes I felt the love. It travelled all the way from Paris-to-South Africa through the Balmain Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The clothes did all the seducing without saying a word.

French couturier Pierre Balmain believed “dressmaking is the architecture of movement.” His mission, as he saw it, was to beautify the world like an architect. “nothing is more important in a dress than its construction.”

Balmainis is now under the direction of Oscar de la Renta. Pierre’ timeless elegance and bold elegance, lives on.This collection showcases bling, bling and more bling.  Bold prints and patterns, flowing leather skirts, well tailored suits…and florals. Simply BELLE!  Here are my favourites.
