Balmain and his army of bedazzled, shoulder-padded, women!

more of the military trend...meh

Same old song n' dannnnnnce! but i still like

If tinkerbell and some rockstar had a lovechild...this is what i imagine she would look like


Christophe Decarnin is the man on whose glittery, highly padded shoulders rests the success of the whole of the mass market as it currently stands. It's a known phenomenon that the cost of a single one of his jackets ($9,000 or thereabouts) could pay for an entire wardrobe of Balmain knockoffs for ten teenage girls, but no matter: He is hot. His models are scorching. And if what he does is the opposite of intellectual, it's also so clever it's simultaneously fueling spending frenzies up-market and down-. In terms of the general sequins-for-day trend, Balmain's influence is visible almost every which way you care to look in a chain store.

For Spring, Decarnin brought out another whammy of a no-brainer blockbuster: disco cavewoman goes to the front.
