Despite how bad the pandemic has affected so many social activities, fashion houses like Balmain are still finding a way to survive. And it’s pretty much amazing how Balmain has been very much strategic amid the the pandemic to ensure that the sales doesn’t dwindle that much. But for now, enough about the sad reality of covid19 because Balmain has something in store for us. Thank God we’re obsessed with every piece of the Balmain PF20 collection. After all who wouldn’t be so impressed with the creativity of Oliver Roustein, head designer of Balmain.
The Balmain PF20 collection is something that either one of us has seen before. Well, probably you’ve seen it somewhere that you wouldn’t imagine that it will inspire a whole collection. And even if that’s the case, the good news is that the end results of collection are ones to die for.
So this collection is all about celebrating the undying legacy of Pierre Balmain. Hence Balmain PF20. Every piece is sewed to resemble a retro trend that Pierre once built Balmain upon. And as you know, it’s always good to incorporate a bit of vintage in your sense of style. The truth is that, vintage is part of your present and future without even knowing it. We’re stuck with it for eternity, because in order to create new fashion trends designers always have to tap into vintage.
With that in mind, let’s get to the most fun part of this article – the reviews. As I’ve mentioned earlier on, there are some pieces from the collection that we’ve been talking about ever since. So here’s what stood out the most for me in the collection.
Let’s get fashion wasted…
Starting off the list is this portable handbag. The colors are calm and formal, which helps to bring out the classic sense of the entire bag. The design is rather flexible and perfect for any occasion. You can literally carry it to work or any casual occasion you might be attending. Mind you, this Balmain bag has been reconstructed and modernized with leather to fit the mood of the collection.
When it comes to glitter, Balmain arguably knows how to incorporate it into their tailoring. This lengthy blazer tells all the details. As for the white buttons and the glittery monogram, they add quite impressive accents to the entire blazer. Interestingly, the sophistication of the tailoring makes it perfect for formal occasions.
Where you at boss babes? Frankly, my heart always soars with so much pride when I see a woman in a suit. Thank God, this 2020 collection brings a sense of celebrating boss ladies. Now this jacket is an incredible example of a twisted contrast look. It is neutrally playful taking into account that the colors are only back and white. These here are the tailored codes that can never go wrong, ever.
Now we’re talking the real classic. Despite the recreation of the looks, each piece consist of a lingering accent of the vintage. One can never go wrong with the cropped blazers. Plus the texture and patterns are so edgy and nostalgic. These classic codes are sorely breaking the rules that surrounds formal wear. The embellishments alone are enough to accessorize the look. And that’s what make these piece extraordinary.
