Tiger Balmain

For some reason, I've always thought Balmain pieces were for mature ladies who lunch. But then again, I've always associated the label with Pierre Balmain and not Christophe Decarnin. And ever since French Vogue Fashion Director Emmanuelle Alt has been seen about town wearing the newer, edgier Balmain, my interest for Balmain has been rejuvenated!

While Pierre Balmain was known for his elegant pieces, Balmain under Christophe today is all about edgy, rock and roll style. And even though I am not exactly a punk-y kind of girl, I'm loving the dhoti pants (as seen on Emmanuelle above), and the skinny leather pants of F/W '08...

See how Emmanuelle is rocking it...just effortless!

And I'm enthralled to say the least, with the new shape of his le smoking for Spring/Summer '09...

If you think these pieces are drool-worthy enough, I'm not yet done! I leave you with the Balmain fringe ankle boot for F/W 2008 as seen on Vogue Nippon Creative Director Anna Dello Russo. I call it, The Minnetonka fringe boots' higher, badder, runway sister!
