I really didn't get why everyone was going crazy over Balmain's S/S'09 collection. But over time, it really has grown on me. I don't care if I am being cliché, but
Christophe Decarnin's genius is too hard to ignore.
Below are some my favourites from the collection:
The super jazzy, bling shoes
The ones everyone and their Mom loves
