King, could you edit in the one with the english translations instead? It came a few pages later.
I'm actually going to continue a post I wanted to make in the ToJ thread, but that wasn't really the place for it. People were talking about Balenciaga and why you don't see it much on here.
Most of that of course is availability, and also the fact that it's a very small collection. The actual boutique has more models of sneakers than items of clothes available.
This is all my opinion, but the best way to wear Balenciaga requires someone that is typically very.. well.. "put together". Like picture the model from the Egg Bomber. That guy is the perfect guy to wear it. Dark, slick hair, dark eyes. It's clothing that requires a lot of upkeep if that makes any sense. Everything looks best when pressed and structured and well maintained. But it does look super sharp, and the use of technical fabrics is done so well in such a non-technical yet sporty way.
It's like the antithesis to the cool, casual Margiela that you just lounge around in and leave unbuttoned here or there.
It's for the guys that know how to wear navy with black, in fact I think it's the perfect brand for that kind of mindset. Pairs well with lots of Raf and Jil of course. Just keeping those clean lines but not necessarily in a minimalist way.
Most SW&D posters are pretty casual, which doesn't really lend itself well to this. Platypus is the poster I can see best wearing it, but really his austere look is pretty perfect on it's own without incorporating the "sporty" elements that Balenciaga would bring to it. Yes dlester wears Balenciaga really well for sure, and in a more casual way that goes against everything I just said. Damnit dles.
