Remember a few weeks ago I did a post about the Balmain women’s collection being reminiscent of Slimane-era Dior Homme? Well the men’s collection has just emerged online, on Love Magazine’s blog, and to my eye, there’s no Slimane in sight. Instead, references seem to be pointing towards a different style icon – one Tom Cruise. Specifically, a formative 80s Tom Cruise film. Can you guess which one I’m talking about…?
Top Gun. Note the brooding motorcycle jacket above. And below…
A sheepskin lined jacket… pretty air force right?
A leather trench… more World War II than Top Gun, but I’ll claim it for its army association.
Shirtless with jeans… anybody remember that infamous volleyball scene?
