Those Crazy Parisians...
Balmain's Christopher Decarnin
There must be something in that Paris air. First Galliano has a very public, career damaging crazy attack in public (and camera) view, and now, Balmain's Christopher Decarnin was mysteriously absent from the collection's F/W 2011 show today. Rumor has it he ducked into a mental hospital back in January and that the collection was actually designed by his in-house team. Balmain owner, Alain Hivelin, tried to dispel rumours by saying something along the lines that Decarnin had not gone crazy, he was simply tired and at home resting. Sure... a lot of designers skip their own shows to get a little shut eye, totally buying it!
In better news for the company, the collection is pretty fantastic.
