George buyers do Balmain.

(Thanks Lauren for the article.)
So I posted some of the Balmain Fall '09 collection last week, including an image of the stunning silver and black mini dress which Kate Moss was spotted wearing back in April. 
The dress is of course a tad out of my price range but check out what George at Asda have created for £16. Verdicts? The supermarket is hoping the limited edition dress will be one of their best selling items of the year.

I have a dress I bought years ago in a second hand store which is very in-line with Balmain's latest collection - I think I'll be wearing it next week and will post pics.

The Asda version is quite good but nothing beats the original. Those shoulders are one of a kind!

Thanks Catarina, I agree of course but since this one is what... a one hundreth of the price (ish), it does a pretty good job!

True, the price does make it worthwhile. If I found a really good version of the Balmain military jacket I would be all over it :)
But there is nothing like the original.

I reckon we might see some more military jackets out just as we go into Autumn so hopefully there'll be something similar. If you spot one let me know, teehee!

Catarina said...

I sure will!! :D

I own it. I love it. That's asda price...(pat bum and sing theme tune in head)

Business venture - a service that adds shoulder pads to any item...you heard it here first ;)

I was reading Glamour and River Island have their version of the Balmain black blazer for £49.99. I have to check if they ship to the Czech Republic.

Love the business venture redjotter :) PLUS, I got a new sewing machine for my birthday so I can get on this asap.

Ooh Catarina, thanks for the heads up. I shall also look into this immediately. x
