Christophe Decarnin Spring 2011 collection for Balmain received mixed reviews to say the least. Some critics argued that it lacked sophistication and was really nothing more than a parade of embellished everyday basics. Yet, I cannot help but disagree. Yes, this may not be the most intellectually elegant collection, but it is playful, youthful and just plain FUN! I don’t think anyone will be able to say no to one of these beautifully studded jackets or corsets. I for one would love to strut my stuff in a pair of these perfectly-fitted jeans or shorts! What do you guys think? YES or NO?
