and then during Paris Fashion week diffusion label Pierre Balmain (more affordable sister of Balmain) presented its looks for Fall 2012. I have to admit I have spent quite a few hours dissecting what's new, where we are heading (oversized jackets are the answer) during the last few weeks of shows in NY, London, Milan and Paris, and frankly, I love that doing that stuff. But there's nothing like a classic. Black blazer, white shirt, black slim trousers and a bit of disheveled hair. Four weeks of fashion shows, but classic wins every time.
