Style on Trial: Balmain gold toned biker pants

balmain gold toned biker pants

Well, if you’re going to ride a motorbike we guess, in theory, the more reflective clothing you wear the better…

And yet we’re not convinced that these particular biker pants would offer much protection in case of an accident. In fact, we’re somewhat concerned that they might cause accidents. After all, they leave nothing to the imagination – assuming anyone can actually see past the initial dazzle, of course.

All in all, if you’ve got € 3.479,00 to splash out on a pair of trousers our advice is to keep them for best, not for biking!

Would you wear them? Balmain gold toned biker pants, € 3.479,00 from My Theresa.

    I can put them on my head too and pretend they are a tin foil hat!

    What exactly are these made of? Elven hair? Unicorn hide? Actual gold spun into threads?
    One more example that all the money in the world can’t buy you style or taste…

    I actually think, they are quite cool. Paired with some simple black blouse and platform sandals would be a nice outfit for a cocktail party. The only thing that bothers me is the price. Oh well, designers gotta eat too, eh?

    Why biker? Because you could buy a bike with the money they cost?

      Try to look behind the sparkle: The knees are padded. 🙂

    I love them. But then, I suffer from a bit of a magpie syndrome – anything that sparkles… The price, however, is outrageous – but that’s usually the case with Balmain.

    wow…€3479, I have nothing against extravagant purchases, especially since that’s how I make my living but at the same time common sense has to prevail. I couldn’t sell this to you with that price tag and keep a straight face…sorry.

    BUT…having said that I guess they are kinda cool.

    Gold pants make me think of one man only: Michael Jackson.
