Balmain Homme 2011 Fall Collection
New images from Balmain Homme’s Fall 2011 campaign have recently been released. Although Christophe Decarnin is no longer affiliated with the revamped French fashion house, his decadent rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic is very much alive in the garments on display here. Not surprisingly, Balmain continues to deliver impeccably cut and glamorous clothes in their military-inflected Fall 2011 collection. Notable are the coats emblazoned with decorative stripes and gold buttons, chunky scarves, a fur vest, and the ever-present combination of leather jackets and skinny jeans. Although this season’s offering is sure to be a hit, it will be interesting to see how much new designer Olivier Rousteing shifts the brand’s winning formula for churning out luxury men’s fashion in the future.
