Balmain Revives the Pantsuit
Thanks to trend-setting design house Balmain (responsible for the rocker glam trend and influx of sequined minidresses on the racks), pantsuits will be big next season! At yesterday's Fall 2010 runway show in Paris, Balmain sent its signature strong-shouldered jackets and slim, boot-cut pants down the runway—only this time, they matched! Designer Christophe Decarnin paired his glittering brocade power suits with soft and feminine tie-front blouses, leaving us with visions of high fashion power lunches and presentations. While Balmain's ultra-sexy high-slit gowns won't fly as work wear, this new take on the pantsuit could bring a major dose of style to the office.
