From this day on, every time I’ll have to imagine a night out (dancing that is), I’ll think of Balmain, the Spring Summer 2010 collection! This collection was made for partying!
And as much as I dislike skinny pants and acknowledge the discomfort produced by a tight piece of clothing with countless sequins on, I’ll have to admit I would happily open my wardrobe doors to some of Christophe Decarnin’s pieces from the Spring Summer 2010 Balmain collection! (the story continues right after the jump with more images and a video of the fashion show!)
If you can get over the ripped tees, over the glittery pants and the cavewoman-ish dresses, then you’ll be into Balmain next Summer too. Because there’s simply no way of going round this collection if you’re looking for a dance party costume. There’s a problem, though – even if the mid-high heels could help your dance routine, I highly dislike them. With me it’s either skyscraper heels or no heels at all. There’s no in-between. Medium heels go wonderfully with an office outfit. Nothing to do with the club or a smashing party.
Decarnin’s woman is a militant one. There’s almost no outfit without a bullet quelquepart, a war-reminder detail, something to warn us that we’re just camping, that there’s no rest for the fashwarriers, even if they party all night long. Balmain Spring Summer 2010 is a deconstructive, war-friendly DIY glittery collection for those who want to spend in the vicinity of $20,000 for a night’s outfit.
