Balmain has become one of my favourite labels over the past couple of seasons. It seems that designer Christophe Decarnin is in the zone and has become the poster boy for rock-chick bling inspiring copies of his designs all across the high street. 

His now cult peaked-shoulder Balmain jacket was back in force for the A/W ‘09 show tweaked to ensure it remains fresh and modern. He’s kept the same signature shape but transferred it to a leather biker as well as a tuxedo jacket. The ripped jeans and skinny pants have been exchanged for new slouchy harem pants or skinny jean-cut black trousers.

While I’d kill for one of the jackets I’m also very partial to a few sequins. Stripes and sequins together is a winning combo as far as I’m concerned! I heart this…
