British model Anders Hayward from agency Bananas Paris is the new face for Balmain’s Fall Winter 2014 Lookbook captured by the house’s appointed photographer Karim Sadli. The styling in the latest lookbook has been considerably rework by Clare Richardson which has raised the masculinity level as opposed to the initial endorsed ‘Glamazon Boys’ creative styling.
The Balmain Fall Winter 2014 menswear lookbook covers a comprehensive lifestyle featuring key seasonal merchandise in a conservative manner. At a quick glance across the complete lookbook collection below unveils a distinctive military notion reminiscing the earlier moods of warfare movement in the 1940s. The classical black and white imagery further enhance the military-inspired designs with an immersed impression.
Captured within the lens includes the prized Balmain Military Green Shearling Cotton Fleece Jacket paired with the Balmain Camouflage Military Cargo Trousers makes it an instant wardrobe staple classic that will be one of the most sought after camouflage prints in this season. Other noteworthy items from the vast collection are the Balmain Wool Cable Knit Zipped Cotton Sweatshirt which was featured twice in the lookbook and the Balmain Applique Camouflage Military Button Shirt that is a hybrid cross mix between a casual shirt and a military jacket yet pending to be released. Further delights includes my all-time favorite style look of Andres wearing the Balmain Khaki-Green Contrast Collar Cotton-Denim Shirt paired underneath the hughly sought after Balmain Khaki Green Double Breasted Wool Jacket with dark olive sweatpants tucked into ranger boots.
Speaking of the footwear collection, the ranger boots featured in the lookbook draws interest whether the brand will be producing these boots in the current sneaker and low-cut skewed footwear category, since it has been quite some time we had last seen high-cut ranger boots from Balmain. I’m looking forward for the designer to revive this style especially during the fall-winter period where it is most suited and well received, fingers crossed.
