Jacko and Balmain

Watching “This Is It” the movie just validated why Michael Jackson is the KING of POP. Not only was he very particular in details such as being hands on in terms of auditioning dancers, the precise timing of melody, the desired feel of a song and of course, the grandness of his entrances.

Though we see him covering himself in most paparazzi shots, the movie just showed how much he gave importance to every stage momentum. He was obsessed in making a defining moment a grand experience all the time.
No wonder he never followed a trend. He was a trend of his own. From his music to what he wore, he worked his way into being the center of attention. You never knew what to expect next. From white socks, fedoras, sequins, gloves, embellishments, medals and to his very very bold jackets.
Jackson Jacket. He was always spotted with Balmain Jackets, considered as high fashion investment pieces (Average price ranging from USD 3,000-8,000). Converting motorcycle and military jackets to peaked-shoulder tuxedos as trademark. Balmain is originally from France.


The Jacket that opened the Balmain Spring 2009 show caused a fashion buzz when it was seen worn by Beyonce priced at USD 11,000.

To somehow achieve the look of the Jacko-Balmain look, you may want to check out the Jackson Brooch from Jean & Rosz, which can be attached to regular jackets and tops to achieve the military, semi-embellished look.
