I have to say, the more and more the Pierre Balmain collections progress, the more and more I love what is going on. This has to be my favorite collection from Balmain's diffusion line. For Spring/Summer 2013, the Pierre Balmain collection is inspired by glamour under the sun, notably the grand hotels of Nice and the French Riviera, the chic styling of iconic French actress Jeanne Moreau as seen in Jacques Demy’s classic 1963 film, “La Baie des Anges,” and the renowned Parisian club in the 80s Les Bains Douches.
With a palette of graphic black & white mixed with sun-kissed brights, the women’s pieces strike a balance between strong tailoring and delicate romance; the perfect coral lace dress, feminine shorts, and peasant skirts, worn with classic biker or tuxedo jackets. While the men’s provides featherweight playboy essentials; the slim tailored jacket, fitted cardigan, and the perfect shirt signed with a fine black stripe.
