A pair of Pierre Balmain jeans may not cost you $2000, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less awesome than its higher-end older sister. The label is far from Balmain-lite and doesn’t scrimp on the same edgy aesthetic that makes the fashion community go gaga. Just check out their spring 2012 lookbook! We love the classic (but super fierce) combination of high-contrast blacks and whites because it’s hard not to make a statement. Snejana Onopka models the mix of cropped cigarette jeans, zebra prints, motorcycle jackets, zippers, and crisply cuffed shirts, all while sending a clear message: go big, go bold, or go home.
