Balmain’s perfect military jacket

In the UK’s Harper’s Bazaar February 2009 edition they put the appeal of this jacket from Balmain down to the sensuality of shoulders. It’s not. It’s not even the appeal of it being jewel encrusted. Rather it’s a combination of the jewels and the military trend that gives this jacket an utter sexuality.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
