0 0 3 Thoughts on the Recent Acquisitions I doubt the less-experienced guys are able to get great terms (let's face it, they can't be that demanding) and as a result, they will be overloaded with work and probably have a burn out, à la Christophe Decarnin. I think there are going to be a lot more acquisitions over the next few...  

0 0 Fashion Quote: Suzy Menkes on The New Speed of FashionChristophe Decarnin and a model wearing the look he was famous for. He left his job as creative director at Balmain because of a mental breakdown. I thought this would be a good quote to end a frenetic four weeks of fashion shows. Actually, there are quite a few good quotes here, this...

0 0 Balmain Fall Winter 2013Are we sure Christophe Decarnin left? By the looks of things, he hasn't. Balmain has barely evolved since Olivier Rousteing took charge, it is still all about maximalism, in the worst way possible. Think cheap-looking metallic fabrics, bad eighties shoulders, and highly unflattering high...  

0 0 Balmain Menswear: AW13 Collection After taking over from Christophe Decarnin in April 2011, Rousteing is already stamping his own vision onto the successful French fashion house by gathering inspiration from all around the globe, culminating in an outpouring of different cultural references in his latest work.

0 0 Balmain Spring Summer 2013 He hasn't brought anything new to the table, he has simply continued the legacy of Christophe Decarnin's Balmain, and for spring summer 2013 he has ensured that only the hardcore followers will want to wear anything form the collection.

0 0 Five-Figure Dresses From Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Monique Lhuillier, And More Indeed, part of what created the "Balmainia" phenomenon of 2009 and 2010 were the crazy amounts commanded by Christophe Decarnin's creations.

0 0 Balmain Fall Winter 2012 He isn't great, he is just continuing what Christophe Decarnin did at Balmain, but with a slightly more refined hand. I suppose the other issue, the MAIN issue, I have with Balmain is I cannot stand any French attempt at being rock'n'roll. The French are the least rock'n'roll country in the...  

0 0 Balmain Pre-Autumn / Fall 2012 His antennae for the coming of a new, oversize silhouette are finely tuned too: big, chunky biker jackets and vests came slung over the skinny dresses and sprayed-on jeans of "Balmania," a phrase whipped up by his former boss, Christophe Decarnin. In short, this is a collection that will...  

0 0 Lanvin Pre Fall 2012 This could just be my age talking, however, after 10 years as head designer Elbaz has done more to revive and refine the house than any of his peers at similar posts – think Stefano Pilati and Christophe Decarnin both of whom have crumbled if not hiccuped under the pressure of leading an...  

0 0 Pierre Balmain Is Here! (The Fashion Line, Not The Designer) When Christophe Decarnin revived the bankrupt line in 2005, celebs and fashion editors got on board. The only catch? Prices range from around $990 to $14,000–not exactly recession- friendly. Enter 2012. Pierre Balmain (the fashion line) is born: a diffusion of all of the edgy looks without...  

0 0 Ad Campaigns And Catalogues #239 It almost feel like Christophe Decarnin's work, but in a more parred down, less 'destroyed' way. Will you be buying into this collection... Even if the pricing is much accessible than the mainline? I have to admit, the collection looked mundane and expected. Underwhelmed with all the...
