Balmain Fall RTW 2009: Just Can’t Shake the 80s


Apparently, 80s fashion is like that ex you just can’t seem to get out of your system. Just when you think you’ve moved on to something new and fresh, a hankering for ridiculous shoulder pads sets in. Enter Balmain Fall RTW 2009…

Even though I am more than ready for fashion to move on from the crimped and tapered decade that was the 1980s, I must admit that I found the Balmain collection charming, as a whole. The looks are recycled, but refined and the pieces actually appear wearable – even for us non beanpole types. See the highlights in the gallery below.
