The Balmain Spring/Summer RTW 2011 Collection (Paris Fashion Week)

Today was also the Balmain fashion show in Paris. I’m seeing that designer Christophe Decarnin infused lots of studs, safety pins and 80’s punk rock style into this collection.  The military trend is ever popular in most lines this year and Balmain also used alot of corsets as well. Balmain made the shoulder-pad blazer a hit last season and since I’m in love with blazers nowadays, the fact that he had quite a few of them on the runway paired with simple capris and t-shirts made it look like a very wearable line. I’m sure we’re gonna be seeing quite a few knock-offs of Balmain from other fashion houses in the near future. I kinda like it, not as much as the Zac Posen show earlier, but I like it nonetheless.
