Was it because it was completely unwearable? Or perhaps because few people really enjoy pearls as an embellishment on garments? Maybe girls were afraid of getting stolen in the tube?
I truly enjoyed Balmain FW12 Collection. And as much as I love innovation and adore stuff evolving, I think Olivier Rousteing got at the top of his creativity that season. And it was quite obvious that, following a beautifully successful (I just misspelled this word 6 times before getting it right) Spring Summer 2012 that was equally astounding, he would eventually get to put the cherry on the cake. Or the cross-stitch over the breast.
But wait, am I sounding like I don’t like Balmain anymore? That’s not what I said! I truly keep enjoying its collections over and over and over again. It is just that I am such a nostalgic old fashioned grandma right now.
