There are some pieces that I like and some that, well, make me cringe... all-in-all, wayyy below my expectations

It just soooooooo closely resembles last season's collection. And I have a very similar part of boots I got from Asos for 45 bucks, hah.

Still love all of the glitziness though, it's hard to hate Balmain. Just was hoping for something that didn't seem like S/S 09 part 2.

Decarnin seems stuck.

Same here,it was the make up that initially caught my eye. A few pieces aren't too bad to me,but then again some of it is just plain awful,like that last outfir posted on Freja

Pretty much the same as usual, only worse! There are no gorgeous jackets to save it this time...

This is more than tacky, really... I used to like Balmain, because even though some looks were awful, some dresses were incredibly well done. I can't see anything good on it.

Hmm... on second thought it's better than my intial reaction. There are some really great pieces lurking, like the leather jacket on Natasha, the black sequin top on Anna, Sasha's coat(?), Raquel's skirt...

I have to say though, I only like a couple of the dresses. None really stood out to me as they have in the past. And those split pants... just NO.

I would wear 90% of this collection. White tops, jackets and mini dresses are my favorite.

The dresses and Hammer pants are truly painful to look at.
