Talk about the masculine version of Christophe Decarnin's Balmainia female sensation where rock & roll and military vibe were properly mixed up. This Spring/Summer 2010 collection for Balmain wasn't a soft departure from last season but more of a continuation of what we have seen for the collection of future cold months. There goes the torn effect olive green shirt paired with lighter version of the same palette synonymous to the oversized shirts of S/S 2007 womenswear. I love this kind of collection, but lets face it, this is something that consumers would react negatively, maybe for some instances these have been there before yet revived in other sexual angle. For consideration, the lace-up boots captured the roughness of the collection as well as the sleeveless sweatshirts. Sharp shouldered jackets were the ultimate versatile pieces among others in the collection. Surely WWD is right "This rough, rock ‘n’ roll guy is the perfect arm candy for the sharp-shouldered, short-skirted Balmain girl."
