some of this reminds me something Elvira - The Mistress of the Dark would wear - very Halloween costume

i almost think that this collection is like a continuation of the spring collection. The silhouettes are just so similar, and the dresses that Lara Stone walked in look almost identical to the sparkly sequined dress she walked in for spring. The shoulders of the dress just look all too similar

I kinda like the fitted smoking jackets with great shoulder pads,and the rest? well, isn´t it what we have been seing for the last three weeks already??, it was kinda of obvious he was going to glorify this look since he have had such an impotant influence over this season´s trends, so I am not really surprised with this collection at all.

Although I do agree with those comments about how they do on retail, in a high end boutique from Madrid which carries most designers they had like 5 Balmain pieces and they were all priced for like 10.000 or 15.000 euros if not more, which I found shocking concidering Balenciaga´s LBDS from last fall (who showed on every single fashion mag cover arround the world) were 2.500 euros.

That leather dress on Erin Wasson is straight outta Baby Phat no joke
The only look that draws me in is the last one, it's actually comparatively understated and not so tacky

LoL so many haters in here! I really like this collection, but I'm a huge Decarnin/Balmain fan so I know I'm biased by my love. Anyone have HD pics yet?

Its not that bad, half of Hollywood and Vogue editors are going to be crazy about this.
And I kind of like it.

Is it me or it looks a lot like the previous season..

the designs aren't but the materials he used make the whole thing looks TRASHY.

I love balmain, its very disappointing to see this.

So true..
Just because his last couple of seasons were successful...it doesnt mean he can keep doing exactly the same thing and get the same amount of praise...
And those aladdin pants with the slits down the front Now they are terrible

Just like Balenciaga the only piece/s I can say I really like are the beautifully cut satin backed black blazers.
