BALMAIN’S GLORY DAYS

After less than stellar collection from Olivier Rousteing, I could not help but reminisce about the days of Christophe Decarnin at Balmain. His mix of street wear with high fashion, everything body con and with taste level that bordered on gauche; and yet his clothes and styling still echo through fashion to this day almost 5 years later. His use of the most beautiful models, always amazing hair, the shoes – everything was desirable. His talent to create the ultimate desire for four figure priced t-shirts is mad, his way of getting to the women’s souls and making them do irrational things is what true talent is all about. This in my opinion is what Tom Ford is unsuccessfully trying to achieve.

Lets take a look back at Balmain Spring 2010 RTW:
