Balmain Fall 2011 | Paris Fashion Week

Balmain creative director Christophe Decarnin was missing in action for the label’s fall 2011 presentation today, but the show went on with Decarnin’s rock and roll aesthetic fully on display. Models strutted down the runway in sparkly sequined tops and pants, white leather and plunging necklines baring a lot of skin. With all the glitter and shine, it seemed that Balmain was looking towards the glam rock phase of music history for its inspiration complete with Ziggy Stardust-esque jumpsuits.

    Some of those jumpsuit look like something male ice skaters would wear. Just same ol’ Balmain, lots of sequence, “destroyed” tops, pointy shoulders and incredibly tight cargos. For the price tag, its not really worth it. Just my two cents.

    But its INCREDIBLE to see Freja and Natasha :)))

    Love the diamente and diagnol slit on some tops! don’t know about those capris with boots though…

    ANYWAY, so nice to see JOAN here. I have always been wondering why she was not on Balmain’s runway, cuz she has the perfect look for the design.
    Well, here she is, looking incredible as what I expected.

  4. oh noo, minimalism in here as well. I don’t like how the pants are folded below the knee.
    Who’s the woman who is on the last picture on the 2nd page? she looks quite old to me so I wonder whether she’s someone special here.

    I really like Britt ^^

  8. it s incredible how these women manage to look so feminine in editorials, but on the runway they look so masculine and muscly..square and muscly ..i know it could be worse, like looking anorexic..but it s still striking

  11. I agree about the pant folded below the knee with boots under: it does not work at all. It just make these skinny girl’s legs look short and their thighs look big.

    balmain always has the best line-up of models.
    Abbey lee could have looked spectacular but that gold suit makes nothing of her potential
