Royalty. In excess. And modernized. Balmain used a mixture of military, hip-hop and lounge-wear to make their statement. Much of it is editorial and all of it extravagant. Velvets, leather and cashmere - yes! Make sure and notice the shoes with the gold trimmed soles.
Riccardo Tisci showed us that the Devil doesn't always wear Prada. Tisci embraced the "darkness" with his 2015 menswear collection for Givenchy. The road to hell sparkled with a red-glittered runway. Well-tailored pinstripe suits marched down the glittery path, as did sweatshirts, dresses and other-worldly makeup. The to-die-for-pieces that I'd sell my soul for were every single garment patterned with the Moroccan carpet motif. Some were just on a coat while other models sported a head-to-toe, including shoes. Amazing and breathtaking!!
