Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a maximalist at my core. More is more is more when it comes to fashion for me and Balmain is every maximalist's dream. Images from the upcoming Pre-Fall 2018 collection were released and while only a few pieces from the men's range were photographed they made sure to shoot the most memorable pieces. The hero piece from this has to be the crystal encrusted bomber jacket, pictured above center, that will retail for an astounding $40,000, or about the cost of a 4 year degree from a State University. 

Balmain is notoriously expensive but the level of detail that goes into the pieces makes it couture level quality. However the price doesn't seem to be stopping people from shopping as Balmain has reported a 30% increase in year over year sales. Clearly the #BalmainArmy is a loyal and wealthy bunch.
