Baggage Check :: St. Petersburg

Kelly here, with a dose of inspiration from the halls of one of the world’s grandest museums: the stunning Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Have any of you been? I can only imagine what it must be like to stand in one of its larger-than-life galleries; the photos alone transport me to regal, otherworldly places. At first glance the geometric floors and ornate ceilings call to mind the rich detailing of Balmain ss12, where luxurious textiles in black, white and gold come together for a look that is flawless (yep, I said it). So, if by chance I happen to stumble upon a Hermitage Museum gala over the next year, you can be sure I won’t think twice about suiting up in one of these pieces. I’d love to know… What would you don to a fantastical party at the Hermitage?

    I love the Hermitage. If you get an international student ID it is FREE. I seriously spent 60% of my winter days in Petersburg getting warm and wandering the halls.
