Balmain Slashed Army T-Shirt $1625 Seriously??!!

65937 fr dl 360x540 Balmain Slashed Army T Shirt $1625 Seriously??!!

In high fashion,  this  snobette  usually can justify  a certain price tag as it relates to quality, craftmanship  or even  prestige . However when a simple cotton t-shirt with random cut holes is priced at $1625, I have to publicly disagree . Unless of course there  was only one tee  in the world and it was cut up by Pierre Balmain himself.  Something that would never happen since the house was originally a symbol of couture and classic  refinement .  Descarnin’s new spin  on  the label has received well deserved praise since he took design lead in 2005, but this  is one I think the House of Balmain  can live without.  I love  a ripped tee but , but  can you really  justify the price ? I’d love to know the markup on that one… Via net-a-porter. Detailed view on the next page.

Valentino Couture Spring/Summer 2010

 Valentino Couture Spring/Summer 2010

At first glance at the jacket on the left I thought I was looking at Balenciaga or Balmain. But no, This collection is the latest reincarnation of Valentino by designers Maria Grazia Chiuri & Pier Paolo Piccioli.Call me  old school but , being that Valentino is part of that “Holy Grail” of high end fashion that existed bafore most of us were born.

I hesitate to say that I am  fully sold on  the direction. I’m all for reinvention however  hasn’t the Sci-fi- ish thing been done? Thankfully there is detailing on those pieces like the ruffled jumpsuit  that I know would have made Mr. Garavani proud. More images on the next page via style &wire.

Target x Anna Sui, Coming Soon

anna sui Target x Anna Sui,  Coming Soon

I have always been a fan of designer partnerships with mass retailers,” Sui told WWD exclusively. “I think it is a great way to bring fashion to everyone. I love Go International and was intrigued with Target’s new take on designer partnerships. It’s a fresh approach. I was able to select a muse or source of creative inspiration to focus the collection around. It is an exciting challenge to try and interpret my aesthetic into a mass-produced product with a specific inspirational source as the focus.”via wwd

The last target collabo I lost it for was Proenza Schouler and really the rest has been a blur, I can’t keep up. Let’s see how this one goes. Although the Gossip Girl inspiration cited in the article worries me a bit. Regardless Anna Sui rocks! What’s the next  one ? Balmain for Gap ? Balenciaga for Topshop ? or Prada for H&M…

lilac Nina Ricci  Handbags Autumn/Winter 09

When brands like Pucci, Balmain and Lanvin are turning out edgy rocker chick looks on their runways, I always wondered if  the originators of these luxury icons would agree. Nina Ricci who brought us l’air du temps and a decidedly feminine aesthetic,  launched a handbag  available this fall,   from what we can see  these  are a good classic reflection of what we remember Nina Ricci to be. A few more looks on the next page.
