Christophe Decarnin has given us a more grown up Balmain this season. He is no longer presenting a line that looks as if it is made for the twenty-something girl. He is now giving us a selection of clothing that stretches across the ages of 20-45, which is a very nice turn of events. His suits are going to be a must have for the corporate ladies and his short dresses will be seen on the Hollywood elite in a matter of weeks, maybe even days depending on who you are in the hierarchy of fab. We’re particularly pleased to see that Decarnin has kept up with the signature structured shoulder. We just love this look. Slimming as slimming gets even if you are channelling Star Trek.
