Balmain fever hits the fashion world


Everybody talks about Balmain, everybody wants to wear Balmain. All thanks to Christophe Decarnin, who in only four shows has influenced the industry in a way I haven't seen in years: he's behind the comeback of hippie, and I can safely blame him for the return of punk next winter.


But, what is the key to reemerge and old fashion house such as Balmain? For me,it's the sexiness of his designs which include an army of mini-dresses that have already conquered the whole Paris-Vogue staff.

I seem to have missed that first dress.
It is stunning! I know I would have remembered seeing it before.

I started to like Balmain because it offers sexiness in different way, I hate the Gucci way, you know? It's cooler.

love aesthetics said...

yes ur right indie, its sexy but it isnt tacky in any way... I really like the last outfit with the loose light white shirt

what's interesting is post showing the 'critics' tore Christophe an 'new-one', But the general public (us) loved it!

Personally I thought the footwear was uninspired but I prepared to work on the 'baby-steps' principle!
