Everyone knows by now, The Balmain that we’d fallen in love with over the past five years is no more. Christophe Decarnin abruptly resigned as creative director of the fashion house last February and was replaced by his apprentice of two years, Olivier Rousteing. Of course when this happens we expect the new designer to bring a fresh perspective to the brand while maintaining it’s original essence. And he did just that. At the tender age of 25, Rousteing’s collections have replaced the grunge/rocker vibe with a more classy/glam one and lately even some of the silhouettes have changed from skin tight to oversized. I want to continue my love affair with Balmain but I’m still deciding where the new look fits into my mind’s fashion universe. I’d love to hear what everyone else thinks about the new collections. Please leave a comment if you like. J
