Getting a hobbled house up and running is no easy feat, especially after it has suffered from a spinning door of designers and a flirtation with bankruptcy ó both of which have wreaked havoc chez Balmain in the last couple of years. Nonetheless, that is the task facing designer Christophe Decarnin, formerly with Paco Rabanne, who made his debut on Sunday. His bet is that he can shake the brand out of hibernation with a glamorous, couture-influenced look that draws on the house's haute heritage. His dresses came ruffled, short and formfitting, in lace, or embellished with gold embroidery or passementerie. His other look was worn (complete with holes) T-shirts, again embroidered, paired with flared, hip-hugging trousers. The collection had a hint of modernity and showed that Decarnin has some talent, but it lacked the depth and shock therapy to give this old house enough energy for a second go.

i didn't like it either just because it looked like an extension of his own line. anyway, this new one looks promising. i love the fluttering pleats on audrey tautou's white balmain at cannes. that black lace embellished white dress on natasha looks a little rochas-ish ( ) but it looks good nevertheless.

Does anyone have an HQ's or a good video of this collection?

This was my absolute favorite collection for Balmain, and it's nearly impossible to find pics anywhere (and the full video was taken down off youtube)
