Opulent and Intricate: Some of My Favorite Balmain Pieces

Current Cravings


This illustration features designs from Balmain, which is known for their opulent and intricate pieces. I love botanical and zoological scientific illustrations, so I decided to create a fashion oriented version. Instead of featuring different species of plants, this illustration is composed of drawings of select pieces from Balmain’s collections. And just as botanical scientific illustrations attempt to capture the details of specific flowers, this drawing conveys the lavish details that one expects from Balmain.


High quality prints of this illustration are currently available in my Etsy shop. Click here for details.

  1. This is really beautiful work, with so much detail. One would like to take one of the pieces and try them on. Wonder how you do this, certainly not as the first pic Shows, with a ball Point pen. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you. This piece started out as a pencil sketch, which I imported into a computer drawing app so I could apply color and various details.

  2. That’s really cool. The illustrations–your design, really cool. The presentation. Really cool. I like it a lot Mikayla. 😊
