Balmain Spring Summer 2011

I’m not going to lie, sometimes I feel vindicated before the eyes of my mom and my aunts who gave me so much drama while growing up and dressing exactly like the models on Balmain’s Spring Summer runway. I took my mom to a Chanel show in Paris years ago and she was horrified to find a runway full of girls that looked a little like me in high school. It didn’t help that it was the same season Karl Lagerfeld had a French electro-punk band playing in the middle of the runway. I don’t think most of my Fendi bag carrying cousins still understand why I and not they ended up as a fashion editor. I think it’s funny. I love Christophe Decarnin’s punk girls and will never tire of this look. I like the idea of proper girls aspiring to this. I don’t think it’s ironic in the least that England, the land of propriety and manners gave birth to punk. It all makes perfect sense to me.
