DIY: Balmain Me!

The Inspiration:
The DIY Result:
My all time shopping rule is one: NEVER buy something you can make on your own. When I first saw Christophe Decarnin's (my all time favorite fashion designer) Spring/Summer 2011 collection for Balmain, my heart probably skipped some beats. The certain T-shirts, though, are priced around 1035e *ouch, Christophe!*, so  I bought an H&M men T-shirt, some safety pins, ripped the Tee with a razor blade, put the safety pins on and here it is! I was wearing it last night, and it made quite an effect! Try it guys, it is so easy and it really looks like the original one (extra point: you save around 1025e, go buy a purse now!).

Love it or hate it? I love it so much, I will absolutely get my self a white one too!

xoxo,
Froso.

congrats on your idea, your effort and the effectuation of your own new t-shirt!!!!!!!!! But I would definitely not weat this!!!!!!

Antonia-Ivana said...

I did something similar too.
It wasn't inspired by Balmain and this is why it's not cut so much as yours. If you want to, you can look at it: http://antoniaivana.blogspot.com/2010/11/what-i-wore-someday.html

I like your DIY-shirt a lot!

You do not see the difference (except for the price probably). It’s like the green army Balmain t-shirt, go to your local hardware store and create this look, fabulous idea.

That is a very good rule missy! I second that. I make my own clothes too. I love the butterfly prints, but my wallet is in poor shape right now, so I made my own. Not so lucky with the pics though:P
