Balmain Pre Fall 2012

Olivier Rousteing uses the word "Comfy" to describe an informal presentation of this Collection at Balmain's offices.   Yes, the Blazers and Bombers came in men's proportions with loose pajama pants in silk or devore velvet. 
It's far from just "Comfy", Rousteing uses Czarist Russia as an inspiration.  The pieces were encrusted with pearls, crystals, and wallpaper florals.  Rousteing recreates the look of Faberge eggs through the use of watercolor prints with the use of vibrant colors like blush pink and deep emerald.
