No doubt a collection that one is either going to love or hate, Balmain’s Christophe Decarnin made no apologies with it’s trashy rocker chic aesthetic. Everything from animal print and leather to lace and chain mail was slashed into ubersexy body conscious cuts and paired with what looked to be heeled Minnetonka tramper boots (NEED). Though the collection could said to only appeal to a very specific customer (lithe body, incomprehensibly large bank account, and a very healthy nightlife), I’m fully in love with practically the entire collection and can’t wait for it to appear on the pages of French Vogue. Which should happen pretty soon considering it took Emmanuelle Alt about three seconds to get her hands on it. So perhaps tacky, perhaps crude, but if it worked for Tom Ford, then Christophe can’t be too far off the mark.
