MORNING COFFEE-July 22, 2014 Designer Look Book…Balmain Spring/Summer RTW 2014

Good morntiiing Bizzies,

Happy Turn-up Tuesday!!!  Okay, so I’m back.  I’ve been out of commission, moving and shaking, these last couple of days and hadn’t had a chance to blog.   It feels like forever!  Did you miss me??  lol  Anyhoo, today I have a treat for you guys, another designer look book recap of one of my faves for this current season, Balmain! Yaaaas, Balmain!!!  In case you are not familiar with Balmain, for some odd reason, here are a couple of fun facts: The style house was once headed by Oscar De La Renta from 1993-2002.  In 2008 and 2009 the clothing line became extremely popular among the mainstream and over the years as been the designer of choice by dignitaries.  The style house is now being headed by the young and very attractive designer, Olivier Rousteing. 


After working under Roberto Cavalli for five years, where he was in control of both the women’s and men’s ready-to-wear collections, Rousteing joined the House of Balmain in 2009 and has been in charge and killin it ever since.  His client lists includes all of our top fashion and style favorites, Beyonce, Rhianna, Kim K., La La Anthony, Ciara and Zoe Saldana, just to name a few.  All  have been spotted rockin this designers duds this season.  I mean, we’re seeing Balmain everywhere!

This collection has just the right mix of attitude, edge, class, sass, sexy, fun and sophistication.  I’m in loooove!!  Although this collection is for Spring/Summer 2014, I feel like a lot of these pieces can be worn and/or referenced for style inspiration through this fall and winter seasons as well.  Okay, so without further ado, take a look at some of my favorite Balmain looks:
