Probably the biggest news in fashion this week has been Christophe Decarnin. I looked back at his years there on Wednesday. If you missed it read it again here. I thought it was appropriate to remember the original Balmain in today’s Vintage Sunday. Decarnin’s collections were all about big shoulders, perfectly cut pants and so on, but Pierre Balmain was mostly known for his gorgeous gowns. Just look at this one from 1961. Simple, sexy, Parisian chic are just few words coming to mind. It will be interesting to see who the new creative director will be and what direction he (or she) will take. I can’t wait to see it.
Have a stylish day.
