A GUY’S CRASH COURSE TO 2013 COLLECTIONS: BALMAIN SPRING PICKS

image

Balmain has always had a cool, edgy, and rocker aesthetic.  This spring’s collection was no exception.  The mostly khaki, black, and olive green military inspired collection is perfectly tailored with cool leather jackets and slim trousers with motorcycle details.  We definitely take inspiration from the collection’s looks.  Bring out those leather jackets, gentlemen!

Black leather and olive green is a pairing that always looks cool.  We love this simple olive green henley paired with the structured, tailored leather jacket.  Cargo pants are rarely a look we would wear, but the slim silhouette of these pants almost make us feel okay about cargo pants. Almost.

This military jacket is a piece that we need in our closets now.  It’s tailored to perfection and the short length makes it more casual and seem less campy.  The motorcycle detailing on the jeans are subtle but add visual interest to set them apart from your average pair of jeans.

Okay, so we aren’t huge fans of colored leather.  But the darkness of this teal leather jacket almost makes it seem like a neutral.  It would work with lots of other neutrals and would add a bit of flair to any look.

  • Tailored leather/military inspired jackets
