Christophe Decarnin continued with his signature rock and roll aesthetic for
his latest collection for Balmain, sending lithe models down the runway in
an assortment of studded, pinned, zippered, and sequined jackets, paired
with tie-dye jeans and dangerously short shorts. Balmain’s well-known tennis ball shoulders were noticeably gone, but the house’s spirit of moneyed
nonchalance spiked with glorified biker chic lingered on.
