because of the hype.

Is it a joke? it's just a copy of Isabel Marant last season show and a copy Emmanuelle alt style!

The Balmain trashing need to stop. Never mind Balmain being trashy.

Personally I'm loving this so far. It's just immaculate and I always enjoy their shows. It's so chic and wearable.
I'm never bored of the Balmain silhouette. It's always revived with such class.

I really like the black blazer/shorts combo. That's nice. But I think I'm a bit over pants that come up so short, only problem for me

Well, speaking of that...Pierre Balmain did evening wear, but sure as hell never ever rock chic (hate that term). And Erik Mortensen, you know, who was head designer for Balmain for 10 years (1982-1992), he never did clothing for drug addicts look-a-likes either. He was from my town BTW...

Balmain used to be pretty much about fancy evening wear. And now it looks...well, not very expensive or even glamorous.

same sh*t all over again. it's like isabel marant's last collection with a touch of balmain's trashiness. which isn't surprisng at all, since emmanuelle is transforming these two brands into 'sisters'.
seriously... what the hell are those ripped tights?? they're so taylor momsen...
it's like a collection inspired by kate moss's style but made just for young hipsters. i can no longer imagine someone like carine roitfeld (who used to wear balmain) wearing any of this.

same cr*p but quite clever considering the mass ( and mid-)market only now is picking up to this rock chick style.
the brainwashing is still underway so it only makes sense for him to continue doing exactly the same as one or two more ladies will buy it now.
but yeah, isabel has 4 rails in selfridges balmain has barely got one. price price price, someone needs to knock that into the house!

This is as far away from class it gets, if you ask me. I doubt that Decarnin had a classy, sophisticated woman in mind when designing this.
