Tahar Rahim in Balenciaga - V Man Issue 25 Spring 2012

V man issue 25 / ph: nick knight, vman.com

it's not a big secret that i am a big balenciaga fan. it always excites me when i see balenciaga menswear in editorials, even more so when it appears on the cover of a magazine. french actor tahar rahim appeared on the cover of the latest issue of V man spring 2012 issue, dressed head to toe in balenciaga menswear spring summer 2012. photographed by nick knight, we see tahar in various balenciaga pieces throughout, it's almost like a dedicated menswear feature.

bizarrely, carine roitfeld styled the shoot: she who famously fell out with the house of balenciaga. what was it for again?

(a) balenciaga sample that carine "misplaced" in a max mara factory, or
(b) balenciaga not happy with the way vogue.fr was being managed, or
(c) jealousy over vogue.fr's love for balmain, or
(d) all of the above, or
(e) none of the above

whisper to me please!

do you like the editorial? i like the cover, and love the sunglasses from the lookbook shots. need!



  1. well since it's all over, i think Carine, Marie-Amelie Sauve and Nicolas are buddy buddy again, as well as the rest of the fashion circle, whereas Emmanuelle Alt has just one friend - Mlle Agnes.

  2. the sweater from the cover is my favorite! my friend is interning at balenciaga this summer – i hope she gets something she doesn't want haha!

  3. that sweater is my favorite as well and wanted to purchase it but when i saw it in person, it's sadly lacking. it looks faded and is too short.

    it's one of those photogenic pieces that doesn't have hanger appeal.

    the shoes are killer though. love them!

  4. The sweater and long sleeve shirt looked classier in the editorials. That is not a compliment :D

    The jacket still looks sweet though.

  5. i like, and yeah, especially the cover


what's he wearing?
