Sorry but I got to disagree with that, not just anyone can wear DBSS even if it is all black. DBSS are huge and bulky, I remember a few months back there was even a discussion here on how difficult to find jeans to go with it, there was maybe 1-2 looks where it looked good and that was it. I mean come on, even Unc is selling his because he feels he can't pull it off, Synth even rarely wears his (I know it's not blk & wht but he's one of the very few who has enough swag to pull them off).
At least with the Balenciaga and Lanvin, it's pretty low-profile, somewhat sleek silhouette, it can be pulled off easier because you can just cover up the top with your pants/jeans, you won't be able to do that with DBSS. And if you are short, you might as well forget about it because it'll make your legs look short.
