Italy-based e-commerce site, Luisaviaroma, recently put up a handful of Fall 2009 Balmain pieces, available for pre-order. Not surprisingly, their Balmain inventory is mostly comprised of strong shoulder jackets. Perhaps they've had the same experience as Net-a-Porter, who sold out of one of those $11,000 dollar jackets in one day. Check out a few of the pre-order items (and their price tags) in the gallery below.
Looks like all of those fabulous statement shoes from the Spring 09 season are finally hitting shelves...and just in time for the Fall 2009 women's ready to wear shows. Can you handle it? Yeah, neither can we. Our best advice is to stash a dust bag with a pair of rolled up ballet slippers in your purse. You know, just in case.
