Finally today arrived; the day that Balmain showed its S/S 2011 collection. Since I adore Balmain, my expectations were many and very high. Unfortunately, I must say that I was slightly disappointed when I sat down in front of my computer and eagerly looked through the looks created by Christophe Decarnin. The last seasons, Balmain have produced collections that women have gone crazy over, and the term "Balmania" hasn't occurred without good reason. Still, I had expected more this season as I feel that this is something we have seen before. I believe that such a talented designer as Decarnin, who turned the Balmain fashion house around a few season ago, should take his collections even further and not rely too much on the previous collections he has made. But enough with the moral talk, and on to the good stuff - the jackets were stunning, oui? Definitely a great DIY project.
