From Extravagantly Priced Ripped Shirts to Sequined Pants

 - Sep 7, 2011
In honor of my absolute favorite fashion house, and one of the most extravagantly priced ones at that, this grouping of bold Balmain finds will take all chic readers straight to fashion paradise.

Since Christophe Decarnin stepped down as creative director of the brand earlier this year and was succeeded by Olivier Rousteing, the entire fashion world has had high hopes for the house of Balmain. Easily one of the edgiest labels out there, and certainly the one with the coolest rock n' roll feel, these bold Balmain finds consistently provide fans with tiny, sequined mini-dresses and studded jackets that are always drool-worthy.

It's hard to forget the $1,600 ripped t-shirts from the Balmain collection a few seasons back. Love them or hate them, this '80s-inspired luxurious fashion house is one-of-a-kind and will continue to be one of the most-coveted and successful brands in fashion for years to come.
