if miranda priestly's daughter were a rebellious rocker who dated boys like sid vicious, she would wear balmain's aw08 collection.
structured jackets left undone, slim and cropped pants, black lace dresses revealing miles of slender leg while redefining the idea of the lbd; no leaf left unturned, and everything with a tangible air of laissez-faire.
according to christophe decarnin, the creative mastermind behind the designs, "it's more hard rock and punk this season". which is quite the change from the previous collection: spilling over with fringe, tie-dye, and the like. though the underlying tone of being free spirited has carried on throughout the seasons.
something both ms priestly and her daughter can appreciate.
