Decarnin has done great work making Balmain a relevant label again, and the recently launched menswear line is clearly based on his own personal style (see below), an unsophistocated mix of luxury,  the skinny, ripped t-shirt and leather jacket indie rock look and a more urban and military inspired style.  Worn head to toe it can a bit too much, but some of the individual items are impressive, with the leather jackets and military outerwear in particular really standing out.   However, if your really into this look but cant stretch to fashion house prices its a look that could easily be recreated from vintage stores and one that I wouldn’t be surprised to see being picked up by the mainstream pretty quickly this summer.
