She's this brazen almost unhinged creature high on money, low on class and yet irresistible. These clothes are the clothes you get sloshed in the back of a limo in - I'm never going to do that but I'm glad someone else is so I'm happy this exists. SOMEONE has to do this and now that Roberto Cavalli has gone and gotten recession conscious and faux-classy I'm more than happy that Christophe Decarnin has picked up right where he left off and provided the Kate Mosses of the world with something to have hiked up backstage at a Kills concert.

Kudos Christophe. Kudos.

Exactly!

Yes this is trashy, of course; but it's deliciously trashy.

I agree with those who've said the prices are scandalous, though; in fact you'd need to be drunk to pay them.

This collection is so boring

Seems like I'm one of the very few people who reaaaally like this huh? :p I agree, that it's a little repetitive from what he did last season... but hey: last season was fantastic and so is this! I absolutely love the emphasized shoulders, the fabrics, the grey & black, the "bling" (how some like to call it) .. that's just Balmain! And exactly what I was expecting

No matter how trashy this is, this is doomed to hit high street stores like Zara!

But this nothing like Tom Ford's Gucci.
