Balmain Resort

Dear Diary,
                 As I look around this summer when I go out to different places I began to notice a common trend for the everyday fashionable. People are beginning to dress more with a Cali-inspired style. The loose over-sized tees, pastel Aztec graphics, adorably fitting short shorts and of course the new “little black-dress”, that every women must have in her closet, a colorful romper. This trending statement says “I’m the fun girl from next door” but since it’s so common could it also say “I’m on the band wagon?”

So to help all of you fashionistas out there who loves to stand out and be a step ahead of the crowd while not being too radical like myself, I did a little research for you to help you to  "Unlock your style" this summer. Two words, Balmain Resort. Even though the French fashion house has always been known for its glam-rock style, with its Women’s Wear department under the new direction of Olivier Rousteing, he has brought up a line Cali-inspired while keeping the high fashion touch. Only being 25, Rousteing has already been with Balmain for three years and even before then he worked five years for Roberto Cavalli as the designer for the Men and Women’s ready-to-wear collections.

The best way to describe his line would be Cali meets Vegas while visiting Paris. From its bold Aztec prints, to the eye-popping gold fringe, mixed with oversized pastels and loose fitting belted bell bottoms, this line states summer for the seriously fashionable.
