Balmain - Paris Spring 2010
(PARIS) Christophe Decarnin knows how to rock--and how to sell. His Balmain collections have been nothing if not directional, influencing the spirit of everything from Urban Outfitters to Milan. For Spring 2010, his hardened rocker-chick got a bit more burnished, with chainmetal and golden-tinged everything adding an air of the Grecian to the looks. Shredded denim, lace-up leather jackets with tails and, of course, minis abounded, in both shirts and shorts. The most sure-to-be-imitated item? The LGD, or little gold dress, that takes the old classic up a notch.
