A M A Z I N G !!!
It's unapologetic, intentionally 90s, yet modern. I love the little dresses that are like walking pieces of art. Just love it !!! A+

We all know the shoulders will be watered down for the ones not bold enough to wear the shoulders.

Sorry but I'm over it. I was hoping that the new designer (who by the way is so fricken hot) would move forward with Balmain but this is just a rehash. This look is stale. Sorry.

This is so disappointing.

The shoes look good. The clothes seem to be missing the usual excitement.

Of the details shots @ post #39, of the final image - the rear view of a jacket:-

My grandmother had a chair in her conservatory just like that. That which looks ugly as old ladies garden furniture is best not resusitated as clothing which, presumably, is intended to be modern. Astounding workmanship but attrocious eye. Way too fussy, chintzy, like an old ladies interior.

Yes - to both your parenthetical comment () and those outside parentheses. I can't get behind these shoulders. Although the details of the fabric do look pretty awesome in terms of workmanship.

This is quite honestly the most hideous thing I've seen in quite some time. Those shoulders make the girls look like linebackers. Tsk, tsk.

I like how he retained the essence of Balmain but took it into his own perspective! I love this a lot!

So horribly contrived and costumey. Late-80s Versace is best left as a distant memory. I hated it then and the hate remains strong now. The huge unstructured shoulders are so lazy and unimaginative but really done to death now when 18-year-old hipsters are pilfering thrift stores for them. What's uglier than those tired shoulders are the pegged-leg pleated pants. This is all so campy it's like he's designing for a Dynasty movie. DSquare's campy and customey ode to Peter Lindberg's shoot for Harper's Bazaar's revamped September 1992 issue was frivolous fashion-fun. This is not. Yuck.

Christophe Decarnin's trashy-but-never-retro-decadence is sorely missed.
