If you know me then you know how much I love Balmain for the dreams it creates. It is one of my favorite design houses to follow, admire and support. I have been fortune enough to be connected to this brand the last couple of years and this is the reason why.. Olivier Rousteing really came to win this season with his Men’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection. For those who follow, you know that I am obsessed when Olivier Rousteing works with crystal details, hence my obsession with Fall/Winter 2012 collection. Now, with this runway show we can see that the king of crystals is back!!! Balmain’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection is something our of a fairytale movie, the kind of stuff that princes would wear, the kind of stuff you could only see in movies.. Something very royal, something very regal, something veryThere are way to many epic moments that are happening in this collection and I could go on and on but I will just let you see it for yourself! View some of my favorite looks below!

When it comes to menswear, you know who always get’s my love! My boy, Olivier Rousteing, always knows how to do it and this year was nothing less! Him and his muse for the evening, Justin Bieber, both rocked some custom Balmain Homme Fall/Winter 2015 looks as they attended the 2015 ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’ Costume Institute Gala At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art! A couple of the best dressed boys no doubt!

Here are your first looks at the Balmain Homme Fall/Winter 2015 mens collection. I of course love the luxurious textures and the use of the crystal and embroideries. Something new and interesting this season are the extreme proportions Olivier infused into the silhouettes of the mens collection. From the Samurai style pants to the extra long blazers. I also love the new lengthy coats, especially the velvet one with the embroidered cuffs – it’s so luxurious #HOTDAYM!.. Anyways, continue reading to see more of the collection and read Olivier Rousteing’s method behind the madness and inspiration for the collection.

For this collection, I was inspired by how I’m seeing today’s new generation dress for the evening. In all parts of the world—from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, with stops in Paris, London, Dubai and the other traditional and rising fashion capitals along the way — I’ve been noticing what you could call the evolution of the ‘new aristocrats.’

Unlike traditional aristocrats, this diverse and inclusive grouping of stylish men knows how to confidently blend together looks pulled from both their fathers’ wardrobes and the streets. For Fall 2015, I’m channeling their energy and referencing that new creative mix made up of perfect doses of classic pieces, fluid silhouettes and hip-hop stylings. It’s a spirit that seems right for my generation and a style that I feel comfortable calling my own.
