Army of Disco Cavewomen at BALMAIN
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.
