Balmain Brings the Amazonians to Life

Forget this season’s eighties bandwagon. Balmain contrived his visions of beautiful Amazonians – powerful all-female warriors from Greek mythology – and let his enchanting dominatrix army loose onto the runway at Paris Fashion Week S/S 2010. His ingenuity with fashioning an otherwise traditional, mundane canvas translated to lamé dresses, rope-like belts, meticulously torn t-shirts and, his trademark, shoulder padded jackets but kept the earthen tone theme uniform throughout the collection. I don’t know about you but, by looking at Balmain’s execution, he appears to have caught Rodarte fever – although his designs are on the less outlandish side and are actually wearable.
