Rock and Roll at Balmain Spring 2011

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?
