Paris Fashion Week: Balmain Fall 2010

March 4, 2010-Paris

Christophe Decarnin's vision for the house of Balmain is not Oscar de La Renta's Park Avenue Matron, or the original founder's Haute Parisian Society Glamour, but a rock-n-roll, rebellious 21st century woman. Taking inspiration in Louis XIV at Versailles, and Prince's Purple rain with silhouettes inspired by Balmain's 1970's couture pant suits and Cardin's space age. This collection was very close to being Tom Ford for Gucci, but yet Decarnin catered to his clientele, who asks for short, mini beaded dresses and sharp military jackets. keeping true to his vision, exclusiveness and great workmanship, Am sure this collection will do fine when it hits stores in this Fall. -David Pedroza
