I don't have much to say about Balmain this season. This collection was honestly not ground-breaking at all. As much as I love Balmain, designer Christophe Decarnin really needs to move on from his Eighties Revival theme. This collection felt very much like a spring 2009 de ja vu. The padded shoulders, rise and fall hems, embellished mini dresses and sweet-heart necklines. Sure they weren't exactly the same, the shoulder pads were slightly different and the necklines were replaced for pointy necklines, but anyone can spot the similarities. But other then that, I loved this collection, especially the padded shoulder coats and the strap booties.
