I have to say, I'm all for "tame" Balmain, if there could be such a term. I certainly respect all the details. I just think they need to be balanced with other elements like block colors to balance all those loud prints/lazercuts/beading. Balmain Spring 2013 RTW - Review - Collections - Vogue
Claudius' Napoleon Coat will be heavily embellished to show that he is high commander of Denmark. It will be made in purple (different from the color pictured here), but tailored very precisely to emphasize the military lines. His adornments (including buttons and shoulder adornments) will be in gold or bronze. This future-meets-past aesthetic will bring to mind ideas of the original Hamlet production, but keep the world of the play intact as extremely futuristic.
