Balmain S/S 2010

'Madmax Beyond Thunderdome' translated into an editorial reality by Christophe Decarnin for Balmain. Key pieces like chain mail mesh dresses and metallic jackets dominated Balmain, hard, edgy yet uber sexy dresses came down the runway for Spring 2010. Though certain pieces kept true to this seasons fashion crave-the 'utilitarian look', feminine sex appeal was not lost. Distressed liquid leggings paired with a victorian inspired jacket still translate into spring because of its casual appeal. The low neckline gold metallic shirts paired with a skinny leg jeans work both as an attention grabbing day-wear or as a laid-back steamy club outfit, either way all eyes are fixed on you! For some, the 'bold shoulder' look has become redundant on the runway, on magazines, and on the streets, but its undeniable that Balmain did not disappoint for S/S 2010 by re-inventing the bold shoulder out of the 80's inspired jacket and into a victorian inspired piece. Ladies remember that one of the sexiest feature to enhance about one's self is the shoulders, and these jackets are a way to go! Sexy should never translate trashy!
