Balenciaga & Browns

I went to see the Balenciaga Spring 2008 preview at Browns. It’s so fun to drink champagne and eat rose petal flavour macaroons from La Durée. Who says fashion isn’t a nice life – well actually nobody does! Anyway fashion is great, of course it’s greater if you have more money, but don’t we say that money can’t buy style? But honestly, with the team at , it doesn’t matter if you have no style at all, you just have to have enough money and you’ll come out looking so good – just ask for Marcio. It used to really bother me when I was a teenager that some people could just go out and buy style, but now it doesn’t bother me at all. I like that anything can be bought or taught, and on a certain level I believe that style can be taught.
So how does this collection work? Well the colour palette is divided between North America and Europe. At the preview Browns only has the samples belonging to this side of the ocean. However if you like a garment in a print that sells in North America, at this particular moment in time you can order it and you can have any combination that you’d like. Not all these looks will be sold in Browns: many of the looks will sell out before they ever even hit the shop floor!


I love these shorts and this little jacket!!
