The Eighties are back!
This season, Christophe Decarnin has gone sexy Baroque 'n' roll, with a Balmain outing pitched somewhere between Prince's Purple Rain pomp and Louis XIV at Versailles. Several recent Balmain signatures, like bold-shouldered, glimmering minidresses, heavily detailed military jackets, and skintight leather made their requisite appearances, but this time round they're more refined and richer in texture with more ornate in detailing. It wouldn’t be a true Prince inspired collection without flared styles, which is a nice contrast from the usual second-skin bottoms that Decarnin usually displays. So he stuck with his winning formula and combined it with a more decadent look Thursday at his Paris fashion show and nailed it again!
