Christophe Decarnin's visible influence for Balmain was clearly taken from a surplus chain store. Decarnin's army of sleek rail thin models strut the walk with huge-shouldered pads, metal epaulettes military coats, and shredded sequin mini dresses. Tight colors of gold, army green, black and silver tamed a artful military palette. Tattered t-shirts, raggedy loincloths moved to a seventies disco Versace party gone military-esc. Balmain none the less had a huge runway success.

Riccardo Tisci, the Givenchy genius, created quite an awakening at his Spring 2010 show in Paris. Looks from geometric bold prints in black and white, draped layers with graphic jackets with subtle Arabic influences. Tiny kilts, drop crotch harem pants, modernized tutus, his mix of madness was quite a show. Zigzag psychedelic prints with platform wedges blending in the same print covered and wrapped in tulles. He showed goddess dresses in white tulle that told the story of his research of Roman couture.
Nicholas Kirkwood joined forces with Rodarte, and created an incredible promiscuous bondage wrap boot. The bondage wrap boot basically sums up the whole bondage black leather trend that is sweeping the fashion world. Anything and everything that is S&M has hit the runway this fall 2009.

What's amazing about the Valley Bazaar Bootlettes is how they can restyle last season's pairs. Craving new boots this season is the antsy impulsiveness we all have right now. But, thanks to Valley Bazaar, we have the simple boot accessories that reinvent last seasons boots or add a rocker hipster vibe to any boot. Each Bootlette is sold individually at $75.00.

Studs just seem to be making a bigger statement each week in fashion. When is this trend over? I think not yet. After flipping through FRENCH VOGUE today... I think they are here tacked down for a bit. Gold pyramids to silver cones, Studs are taking over. Studded chucks worn by Ms. AGNES, to statement clutch from Jimmy Choo. And Ms. Olsen, always over the top, we will leave it at that.
