Pierre Balmain Fall Winter 2012 Collection
May 15, 2012 by J.T.
Balmain’s secondary line, Pierre Balmain, proved once again that it can stand in its own and if anything, compliments the house’s primary line. For Fall 2012, the mood is dark, poetic with reinvented basics such as blacks paired with whites, grey and midnight blues.
Classics are sensually modernized as seen on a black double breasted suit worn with an half open men’s white shirt. The multi-zippered leather biker jacket is worn loose, and an appealing 3/4 coat features a trompe l’oeil studded bolero. The chiffon blouse is embellished by animal prints while an all-over studs tank top is worn over a black t-shirt with laminated trousers.
To illustrate the collection, the brand tapped Martial Scheltz to create a black and white film inspired by late fifties, early sixties French and Italian films. The film features models Melissa Stasiuk and Adrien Sahores embodying the “Pierre Balmain” persona, looking at each other and being narrative without saying a word. But you don’t need any dialogue to know that this latest collection will speak volumes to consumers.
