Since Christophe Decarnin’s apparent comeback last year, Balmain has been displayed, photographed, copied, worn and just over-publicized all around.
His $9,000 military/band/sargeant pepper jackets were worn by the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Gwyneth Paltrow and the great Michael Jackson.
His acid-wash jeans, well, they are pretty much mainstream.
His $1,5000 studded crystal sandals were shamelessly copied by Zara, and then seen on every corner.
But… we still love him.
And I kind of love him even more after seeing the looks from his spring show.
Short dresses that hug the body, ripped tshirts with form-fitting shiny pants, and tops that just melt on the body.
Vogue‘s Sarah Mower called it “disco cavewoman goes to the front,” and she hit the nail on the head.
