This is nowhere near amazing, or even good, but I do really like some of the propositions here. As some have said, this feels a lot like Gianni Versace, especially in the prints, which I like. What I don't like is his view on power shoulders... I have nothing against it when it's done right, but this just looks too boxy and wide.

oh no, the power shoulders... just no i usually like big shoulders... but this ones are just too much... i can see spanish music group Locomia in all of those power shoulders. and don't even like the prints here... what happen Olivier? i think this is his first miss since he has become head designer.

Why is it that someone as young as him can design something as old as this? There is nothing appealing about the clothes. Just an appreciation for the construction. This can goes straight to the museum display! Silver lining.

80s through and through. I quite like the shoulders and crazy patterning. It's always a distinctive feature of Balmain anyway. Not as good as his last effort, but then topping that is a very tough ask.

I think I finally figured out what's been bugging me about his collections for the house... In his prime, even when everything was OTT sequins and shoulders, there was just something quite effortless about Decarnin's work (obviously that went down hill). To try to even emulate that is just too ambitious. Everything here just seems so *forced*. There are some beautiful pieces of course, but the collection itself just feels tired.

I like around 8 looks, which is unfortunately as last season was extremely beautiful. Normally i can deal with shoulder pad galore and tacky power suits, but this just leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. The shoes are killer though.
