Intense studding and multiple safety pins that amount to embroidery hit Christophe Decarnin’s Balmain Spring 2011 RTW runway in a serious way.
“It’s a look I’ve always liked,” the designer said backstage. “I keep pictures of it all over my office.”
Helllooo DIY-central. Buy safety pins while you can…
More of the collection here.
so intense! safety pins are going sell out everywhere sooooon haha
i love all the jackets. one of my fave

Balmain gave me some ideas! 😀
I love the collection! 😀
i’m actually dying. i love this collection so much.
this is beyond words… Decarnin strikes again! Has always been a favorite, and why wouldn’t he be?? With all those studs, leather, and safety pins.. bound to be an amazing line!
The leather pants sold me.
LOL-that’s the first thing I thought when I saw the pics too, “damn I see a lot of diy’s in future” hahaha
Love all the jackets!

i’m smelling a diy project in the near future!!!
love it all
I’m off to the store to get safety pins…I can’t get enough of this collection!
Chech out my blog at
Love these looks!! They seem kind of like glamour-punk but then again I hate labeling…they’re just amazing!
so cool collection!
hah, i thought the same thing, it’s diy time!
I’m in LOVE!
nice. . .love the details! so in love with the style
Just wonderful… 😉
Wow, I’m speechless! It looks incredible-
HAVE NO WORDS for this collection:DD
Aside from the obvious detail work that I adore, the color palette and look is VERY similar to Isabel Marant’s Fall 2010 show, Don’t you think?
oh hello! this is lovely!
I was working on DIY Burberry ones! Now this!! DIY DIy DIY !!
Decarnin’s work is absolutely fantastic. You can see he worked at Gaultier, yet has truly developed his own style. At LFW, it seemed everyone was wearing Balmain-inspired clothing!
I feel as though Balmain has done the same thing for at least three seasons now, in saying that i can understand why! This stuff is amazing! Makes me wish i was a tough enough B**ch to pull it off! I can’t get enough of ripped shirts right now (which is real good for my pocket since all i need is hands and some muscle to create a rip lol).
Great blog too. You have some pretty sweet posts.
Keep up the rad work xx http://www.worned.blogspot.com
the mixing of safety pins and stud look very rock and chic, amazing pictures!
oh my gosh the details are so amazing!
OH!!! nom nom nom… the collection is delicious. in the non-literal sense, obviously. because with all those safety pins and studs that would hurt. yummmmmy nonetheless! x
Oh I love Balmain! 😀
I have a vintage balmain bracelet from a garage sale [It took some time to realize that it was from balmain ;D]
. great stuff, AMAZING pictures!
. i really like it!
Looks like there’s a DIY incoming!
UNF. Sick. I want it all.
Love these jackets, and the fresh-faced makeup. Just beautiful. I may have to try out a safety pin tee like in the third pic, only maybe a little less messy-looking.
Thanks for sharing!
