Balmain launches its classy S/S 2012 collection
Mar '12
Balmain S/S 2012 collection is classy and has a country-and-western star look of the '60s, mixed with “something a bit Mexican, bullfighter's costumes, and wallpaper from Vegas.”

The designer has tempered the look of the collection with a well-thought out use of chambray, sweatshirts, and sharply cut pants in suede and leather - thus respecting the couture heritage of Balmain. A closer look shows that even the pale denim is printed with faded baroque curliques, while the white jeans employ embossed cotton and white snakeskin.

The geometric, gold beading smothered bejeweled fringed jackets and tiny dresses have been created by an expert designer - perfectly in sync with this summer's feeling for deco.

Established in early 1982, Majestic forms the upmarket retail chain of the well known International Business Group, Dubai (IBG) which is today recognized as one of the most prestigious business houses in the UAE and Middle East markets. Its headquarters is based in Dubai, with activities in Paris, Kuwait, Turkey and Lebanon.

The principal activity of the company is the distribution and sale of luxury watches and fashion products of leading International brands including high-end fashion brands for women and children such as Balmain (exclusive boutique), Via Delle Perle, Roberto Cavalli, Simonetta, Ice Berg, Miss Blumarine, Phillip Plein, Ean 13, Maria Grazia Severi, Chiara D'este, Black Diamond, Cappopera, Kelton.
