Christophe Decarnin seemed to channel the same energy and appeal to the same type of clientele as Alexander Wang in New York: the sexy, trendy, and hip downtown party girl. Decarnin’s F/W09 collection for Balmain oozed sex appeal from the “bed-head” hair, to the uber mini-minis (aka bare legs), to the suede boots. Balmain’s signature bold shoulder didn’t fail to make an appearance throughout the collection. Watch for every editor worldwide rockin’ the jackets and dresses (Dello Russo especially for the dresses). I’m not one to borrow words from celebrities, but this collection has earned it; Paris said it best: “That’s Hot“.
