Balmain’s Five-Figure Dresses

Recession? What recession? Perhaps you should ask Christophe Decarnin that question the next time you see him. The House of Balmain, as you know, is currently going through a resurgence, thanks to the blessing of the ultra chic Vogue Paris team.

Anyway, some of Christophe’s latest confections are now available for purchase online.

Strapless mini-dress (€15,574), tulle ankh gown (€15,574) and one-sleeved gathered and torn mini-dress (€15,314) all by Balmain.

I’d like to point out that never in the history of the internet I have seen CURRENT-SEASON dresses being sold at this price point on teh interwebs. I’ve seen other high-ticket items being sold online such as jewelry, watches, cars, etc but current season ready-to-wear?

A lot of high-fashion retailers are being safe with their selections especially in these wild times of global financial turmoil so it’s extremely fascinating how Luisa Via Roma in Italy have decided to carry these high-ticket runway pieces from Balmain.

With that being said, all three dresses come in one size only — French 38. They’re available for pre-order and they’ll arrive at the store on/around the last week of March.

  1. oh i love the tulle ankh gown!! i’d definitely wear that haha :) and it’s so goth XD and the SANDALS! ahah a perfect match for the tulle ankh gown.
    but then the prices for the dresses are too much for this poor person in teh third world.

  2. dresses are on a fitted tacky level, and no its not worth the price. go back to doing something else, balmain.

  3. AMAZING COLLECTION, they also have the coats from this collection on the site, Snejana Onopka is amazing by the way *——*

  4. Got my first designer watch from Balmain-a gift for bday. Thought the brand was dying after Oscar de la Renta’s departure. but now its thrilling to see it back. I love this provocative look of the new Balmain!

  5. is anyone old enough to know VOYAGE (london) from the 90’s??? similar (not the same) overpriced tacky shit…made people swoon too. balmain = off the radar in two years…promise! the green dress does belong in forever 21!!! the black one madonna wore ages ago…. i do have to admit that I like the pink one though..but again, must say that christopher kane started this look a couple years back with the flouro bandage dresses with swarovski..

  6. run way pictures look very different from the close ups. close ups look as if they are costumes for belly dancers.
