Menswear Spring 2012: Louis Vuitton and Balmain

Menswear mania is still going on, it's just moved from Milan to Paris. Usually I like menswear shown in Milan more. Those shows show more what I think most men want to look like (and what I myself would like to look like). Still, two of my favourite luxury brands, Louis Vuitton and Balmain, show their new collections in Paris.

Louis Vuitton
Last year Vuitton's menswear collection made a pretty good impression on me. This latest collection is different, but I like it again. Don't know how to describe why I like it, it just looks good!

Olivier Rousteing is Balmain's new creative director. Christophe Decarnin's former assistant made a collection which feels pretty much the same. I think it's not negative! Especially not for there actually are some fresh new influences, that's logical. For example those tuxedo inspired (leather) jackets and vests. I immediately fell in love with them... Unfortunately I won't be able to afford those (undoubtedly) very expensive pieces just with love...
