Rock and Roll at Balmain Spring 2011

Images via vogue.com

Christophe Decarnin Spring 2011 collection for Balmain received mixed reviews to say the least.  Some critics argued that it lacked sophistication and was really nothing more than a parade of embellished everyday basics. Yet, I cannot help but disagree. Yes, this may not be the most intellectually elegant collection, but it is playful, youthful and just plain FUN! I don’t think anyone will be able to say no to one of these beautifully studded jackets or corsets. I for one would love to strut my stuff in a pair of these perfectly-fitted jeans or shorts! What do you guys think? YES or NO?

I'd say yes! I love things like this. I probably wouldn't wear all the pieces at once, but one here and there would be perfect!

Annabelle Fleur said...

Completely agree! I mean, fashion crowd hates this term but this collection really is quite "wearable":)!

I love these rugged, rocker chic sexy pieces. I would love that white leather studded jacket or something similar like that. If I was artsy I would do it myself but I am not. I love that fishnest with a run are in style. :)

Pour être franc, je trouve que les collections de Balmain sont toujours un peu trop "cheap" et lugubre, même si le résultat est novateur et parfois même très beau !
Balmain est une marque française, mais je n'y retrouve jamais l'esprit de la mode française, où sont le luxe, le chic, la perfection des détails ??
Néanmoins, j’admets que la marque a un style un peu rock déjanté qui lui est propre !

Ce que j'aime le plus ce sont ces petites épingles à nourrice que l'on retrouve sur chaque tenue ! Christophe Decarnin a repris l'idée d'Alexander McQueen, qui en avait déjà utilisé dans ses collections !
