Cathy Horyn's Identical Criticism Of Balmain

Photo credit: Valerio Mezzanotti
Cathy's review of Balmain mirrored my own sentiments. She wrote for
"The clothes were great for showing off the models’ long bodies, and so will produce sexy photographs, but punk is now a style cliché. That Balmain is one of the most expensive labels, with a plain undershirt (without holes) costing around $450, makes the notion of a safety-pinned jacket something of a joke — and not even a very clever one."
I enjoy street style as much as anyone else, but this is taking it to different lengths on the runway, a Parisian runway at that. I would have enjoyed seeing something a little more out-of-the-box for Decarnin, something out of his comfort zone. Like Cathy said, "a punk never had it so good."
