Balmain + Borcade = Beyonce?

Balmain RTW Fashion Show 2010

By Manda J

While NY fashion week took place in February, it’s still fashion week somewhere in the world! Right now it’s the City of Lights (Paris for those who don’t know) fashion week. European style is very different from American style. Europeans tend to be more trendy and sophisticated. On the other hand American style tend to be very practical and girl next door.

Balmain, designed by Christophe Decarnin, recently showed it’s Fall RTW 2010 line. The items in the line have Beyonce’s and Rhianna’s name written all over it. There’s a different spin on the military jacket. Brocade jackets long and short are a trend in this line. Here are some of the pieces I loved. Just thought I’d share.

  1. Dear Juliet. It is really sad to hear that you think we coiped someone else. During the last Fashion Week in Amsterdam we did photograph famous people with our bag. And ILFN did that with their bracelets (which we love and actually wear!). But that doesn’t mean that we coiped it. We just didn’t know it. It’s not that the put-a-celeb-on-the-picture-to-promote-our-website- thing’ is really original. Many websites and even magazines did that.Are we bad?!? Well, we don’t think so. In fact: Garance Dore and Susie Bubble really liked it and posed with it. Garance even asked for our bag, so we think we did a good job, right?Just relax! There’s no need to be bitchy about it. Fashionland is to lovely for it. And yes, we can laugh about it. Hopefully we’ll see you at some kind of fashion party in the future. Then you can see we’re not copycats at all.XoXo (yes, we did copy that line from Gossip Girl. Guilty as hell!)
