Paris Fashion Week Gallery: Balmain A/W 2009 - 10
Sharp shoulders, body-con dresses, sequins, minis with long trains at the back, military-inspired jackets and all kinds of attitude. It's safe to say that, if nothing else, Christophe Decarnin knows what sells. Delivering a killer Balmain collection after last season's hit show was always going to be tricky, and he decided to go the commercial route, bringing us more of the same.
And who can blame him? There's an element of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' here, and though this collection may be a bit deja vu, it's not the last time we've seen that this season, and we love the silver, black and electric blue colour scheme and the look-at-me dresses.
