Things fancy eggs and clothes have in common...

AH. So Balmain was literally MINDBLOWING-from the ridiculously intricate details to the beautiful fluidity of the collection despite its vast differences. I found the embellished minidresses (Rousteing's best) to be the highlights of the show, but I have profound appreciation for its other aspects, like the boxy moto-inspired jackets, quilted leather, and the extensive use of leather and velvet.

I personally believe that Olivier Rousteing has done wonders for the House of Balmain. His succession after Decarnin was smooth, and I have nothing but praise for this 25 year old of unbelievable talent.

"Fabergé egg-style in thousands of pearls and crystals" (nicole phelps, style.com) I definitely understand Phelps' perception of Rousteing's inspiration!

So.......... here is picture of Olivier thinking of Faberge eggs.

be sure to come back tomorrow for another post!
