the balenciaga specialist at barney's nyc

reader -h found another pic of my all time favourite balenciaga men's fall winter 2007 gold buttoned peacoat:

there's dressing up, and there's new yorkers' dressing up! i don't know if i am more jealous of the lanvin cap, the gargantuan velvet bow tie or the illustrious fur collar. he looks like a bag of fun and you just want to hang out with him. ok i wouldn't wear those trousers but i honestly think it works for him and he looks amazing.

hearts <3

there's more of him here.
there's more of me here.

happy weekends!


  1. I honestly think that coat looks hideous, each to hiw own I suppose. It look like he woke up and fell in his Great grannys wardrobe. Dont get me wrong Im all for vintage but this is a step in the wrong direction just my opin.

  2. This chap is amazing! I particularly love the top half of his ensemble. I agree that the Balenciaga pea coat is something truly special.

  3. an almost good ensemble ruined by those horrid croc-effect copper pants.

  5. mmm...i really luv the coat and think it looks great on you but on this guy it looks appaling.he doesnt ve the physics for this outfit and so only conclusion: major fashion failure

  6. Please take a look at my new blog, its aimed at more affordable designer/urban clothes. Cheers

  7. For sure i'll not wear this trousers!!

  8. This coat is fantastic, is it available on the bayyy?
