Balmain Fall '09: We Are Sad

Oh, Christophe. We had such high expectations for you to throw a delicious, trashy, rock-glam-goddess-thon of a show. We wanted you to stun us with a new palette of sexiness, something that trumped those sold-out $2,000 jeans. But the shots are posted on Fashionologie, and is it just us, or is the collection…disappointing? The strong shoulders, sequined shorter-than-short minis, and little jackets were all there...again. And what wasn't a repeat of last season, was simply puzzling: Slashed harem pants, fembot minidresses? Please, help us readers! Are we wrong about Balmain's lackluster fall collection?
