I loved his earlier work at Balmain. Clean, simple and timeless. Shame he got so repetitive.

I had lost interest in balmain lately, so i'll be interesting to see what direction they'll take it in.

You're so right. It's a pity that everything became so tacky. His first 2 collections for the house were way better than the new ones.

although his most recent work wasn't that outstanding I'm still really sad by these news. I always looked forward for Decarnin's collections. I don't like all the changes that have happened recently in the fashion world Changes are good but that's already too much.

His first couple collections were amazing, but they quickly took a turn...

Maybe the past several seasons have been a product of the management rather than Decarnin's real creative vision? What exactly have we been looking at these last couple years? How has Decarnin had to compromise? Maybe this is the real issue, if so, I can't blame him for wanting to distance himself. Reminds me of when Valli was at Ungaro...

^Exactly. Hope he bets better with or without Balmain.

Truth be told though, he did put Balmain (back?) on the map.

Wow, I am surprised!! Sounds to me like a case of overblown ego killing the goose that's laying the golden eggs ... won't be the first time or the last, I suppose.

Thus far I am leaning towards Rick Owens as the successor, and I wish Christophe Decarnin well in his future endeavors.
