Balmain and The King

Balmain you've hit me in my soft spot. Everyone knows I have a serious love for the late king of pop.  I think some people truly embody style and he was definitely one of them.  Balmain has been using Michael Jackson as inspiration for a long time and they have nailed it. Balmain pieces seem to give a sense of of strength,  power, and confidence.


This blazer is all about the STRONG shoulder and it is so bad-ass. It should/could be worn with anything.  I know Zara has made a lot of copies of this shoulder this season. Has anyone tried them out yet?

It's the shoulder again. But this time it's a dress and covered in sequins.  So it's just 560958690 times more bad-ass.




This is it. This is what kills me. This is what would make me feel as gifted and invinsible as Michael was on stage if I were to ever wear it.

A few pictures of the king himself rocking Balmain.

Long live style.
