Balmain is the answer to Dior Homme for women

Ultra-thin models are not only found in Dior Homme runway but also in Balmain. The only exception is that the models in Balmain are all female.

Christophe Decarnin, the current designer for Balmain, is like the Hedi Slimane of womenswear. Creating super-slick silhouttes and sexy female rockers. Simple layering unlike the layering style found on the other runways. Minimalist or maximalist, you decide...

Alt is Balmain's secret weapon? Why?

alt does the styling for balmain.

i think it would be interesting to see a guy in one of the tuxedos, i think the right guy could pull it off.

monsieur AG said...

yes...i think so too but i think the price of the jackets will easily put someone off

weird how hedi slimane inspires so many designers. they are obsessed, and appropriate his personal style.

monsieur AG said...

i think Hedi struck gold when he presented the rockish style or skinny silhouette

I think Balenciaga..in terms of cut and style is closer to DH.

monsieur AG said...

hmmm...but it think Balenciaga is more feminine as compared to Balmain
