Balmain is a French fashion house which was founded by Pierre Balmain. In 1990s, the house was lead by Oscar de la Renta. Those two made Balmain famous for its classic and luxurious designs.
Right now it is lead by Christopher Decarnin, whose vision for the house is more modern and edgier. [Vogue] This modern and edgier vision can be noticed at the spring 2009 and summer 2009 collection.
A collection of very feminine dresses: white, red, green and black, worn with eye-catching studded heels. Pretty luxurious one, richened with jewel embellishments. Also, lacy shirts bleached jeans and – surprise, surprise – studded skirts!
