Balmain Fall Winter 2009 Collection

So Christophe Decarnin is a genius. I adore his work for Balmain. He’s done such a great job by reviving the French fashion house with his vision of trashy rock chick chic. His last 2 seasons were sensational and if I had $10k spare cash, I would definitely invest in a Balmain piece (either one of those uber-cool jackets or one of the micro mini dresses).

Decarnin’s Fall 2009 collection had a touch of déjà vù about it was like an ode to Spring 2009. The peaked shoulders, the rise and fall hemlines, the strapless mini dresses, we’ve seen all of this in Spring 2009 already, but Decarnin managed to recreate them in a way that made me forget the fact that he was basically just copying his work from Spring 2009.

I loved the feminine silhouettes, the disco dresses (especially the electric blue sequinned ones), the peaked shoulders which have come to be his signature pieces. I even loved the harem pants.

All in all, I mostly loved Balmain’s Fall 2009 collection even though it had nothing ground-breaking overly new about it. I’m far away from being tired of Balmain, but I hope to see something different for the next season. Still, I really ♥ Balmain.
