When you’re on the front row at the Balmain fashion show during Paris Fashion Week, you’ve got to look good. And Mr. Kanye West certainly didn’t disappoint. Wearing a custom blinged-out Balmain jacket and a hoodie, it was honestly a little tough to actually focus on the show because Yeezy’s look was so killer. Where do you direct your eyes when there’s amazingness all around? Balmain, Imma let you finish, but can we please talk about Kanye's outfit?
Thankfully, Olivier Rousteing knows how to put unbelievably gorgeous clothes down the runway, so there was more than just ‘Ye to stare at, but you’ve got to admit that was one heck of a show-stopping look he had going on.
West has actually worn this jacket once before, during his Yeezy Season 3 show, but you can’t blame the guy for making this a repeat outfit. If I had a custom Balmain piece, I’d wear it every single day, that’s for sure. In fact, seeing him in this has me wanting to cop his style more than ever before. The Labels and Lacquer girls were already into his athleisure vibes, but this really takes it to a whole other level.
If you’re feeling his look, too, boy do we have some good news for you. While you may not be able to sport this specially designed Balmain piece (it is a one and only, after all), there is a look-alike version available to shop at ASOS.
Here's the inspiration for the look you're going for.
This is a version you could own yourself. It's not quite Balmain-status, but hey, it's pretty darn close. Plus, you don't have to have a Balmain budget to rock this look. It's not cheap, but it's not outrageous, either.
I just love all of the intricate detailing. This is going to go so great over a white hoodie. In fact...
