Balmain Fall 2009

Balmain Fall Winter 2009 Collection

So Christophe Decarnin is a genius. I adore his work for Balmain. He’s done such a great job by reviving the French fashion house with his vision of trashy rock chick chic. His last 2 seasons were sensational and if I had $10k spare cash, I would definitely invest in a Balmain piece (either one of those uber-cool jackets or one of the micro mini dresses).

Decarnin’s Fall 2009 collection had a touch of déjà vù about it was like an ode to Spring 2009. The peaked shoulders, the rise and fall hemlines, the strapless mini dresses, we’ve seen all of this in Spring 2009 already, but Decarnin managed to recreate them in a way that made me forget the fact that he was basically just copying his work from Spring 2009.

I loved the feminine silhouettes, the disco dresses (especially the electric blue sequinned ones), the peaked shoulders which have come to be his signature pieces. I even loved the harem pants.

All in all, I mostly loved Balmain’s Fall 2009 collection even though it had nothing ground-breaking overly new about it. I’m far away from being tired of Balmain, but I hope to see something different for the next season. Still, I really ♥ Balmain.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas – The Boyfriend Guide

by Profashionelle on February 9, 2009 · 0 comments

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows.
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
And the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
Which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide.
And this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart.
I carry your heart.
I carry it in my heart.

E. E. Cummings

Love at First Sight – Givenchy Pink Cut-out Shoe Boots

by Profashionelle on February 2, 2009 · 1 comment

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. I’ve been wanting these gorgeous pink Givenchy shoes since I first saw them featured on NET-A-PORTER‘s magazine several months ago. Finally, they arrived and are up for sale now. The cut-outs remind me of butterfly wings and everyone knows I’m a sucker for pink shoes. Love at first sight!

These stand out shoes will look gorgeous with a black LBD or a nice tailored suit, but if you want to wear them with anything other than black or white, why not go for something blue? As you can see below both colors compliment each other and look divine together.

Other colors you can wear with these shoes which would look lovely together are purple and yellow. Colors to avoid mixing with pink are red and orange. Also, don’t go head-to-toe pink, this would make every woman look girlish and Barbie obsessed.

A few days ago we had the , now it’s time to present you the perfect LBD. Since Miuccia Prada revived it in her collection, lace is one of the biggest trends right now – on runways, red carpets or on the streets. Lace is basically everywhere and worn with everything.

Get your own piece of lace luxury by grabbing this stunning black sleeveless jersey dress with a lace yoke from Alice + Olivia. The cut is classy and subtle while the lace adds a touch of sexiness. So femme fatale, I love it! Plus, the dress is currently on sale for $308 (was $440)!

And may I say that I am equally in love with the shoes? So adorable, so sexy, sooo high. They are also available at shopbop: Berny Demore “Sabrina” Sandals ($226.50 down from $775, FINAL SALE).
