Balenciaga Mania




This season's IT item is...  
the Balenciaga Sci-Fi sweatshirt.

It has taken the fashion world by storm and any one who is any one is donning the coveted design (hence the sold out notice on every website that stocks Balenciaga). It seems to me that all the IT items of the past few seasons have been geared towards the casual department (let's see, Isabel Marant sneakers, jeans and boots, the sports wear trend including caps and single striped pants, Proenza Shcouler PS1 and now also PS11 messenger bags for the daily grind, the leather biker jacket in all shades for all occasions) maybe the idea is that the IT item isn't supposed to be for THE EVENT but for ALL EVENTS. It's about how you interpret and translate the IT item to your closet. It's easy to replicate but can you reinvent? Hmm that is the question...! This sci-fi print isn't a new thing, it's a reinvention of the old "band tee", i.e. a tee shirt from those rock bands who love to go crazy and OTT designs splattered in the middle of the standard 3 sizes option cotton tee. Balenciaga stepped it up with bold neon brights and oversized neoprene cuts, it's difficult to not notice someone wearing this sweatshirt, but it's more difficult to refrain yourself from taking their sweatshirt off their backs...

  13. Luxury watches are totally flawless except the heavy price tags,
    which make them inaccessible for many people. Lakers game.
    They may be dirty through dust having entered and settled
    upon the moving parts, or the oil may have dried up around the pivots and
    become sticky.
