Balmain - Paris Fall 2009
(PARIS) Nobody does disco like Decarnin, and the assault of Christophe-isms seen everywhere in Milan proved how far his reach has spread. For Fall 2009, he offered more of the same rock-chic must-haves, although overall the looks leaned more towards the late '70s than early '80s. Micromini tube dresses in chain-anchored leather or sequins earned attitude with a flounce of ruffle across one shoulder or a fabric flourish around the hem. The token Balmain shoulder abounded, although the acid-wash jean was replaced with a sleeker black style. Granted, the pricing is akin to couture, but if it's flying out of Bergdorf, well, Decarnin is doing something right.
