End of Balmainia: Decarnin's Spring Show Gets Skewered on Twitter

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Showstudio goes on to tweet: "FYI you can buy the Balmain look straight after the show! Just head to Camden market to get it head to toe AND have change from a £50!"

Lisa Tant, editor-in-chief of Flare: "Sex Pistols feel at Balmain where models accessorized with safety pins & sexy bed head. Too literal tho—missing a modern twist."

French Elle: "Balmain: bel hommage a Isabel marant"

@bagsnob: "#Balmain Spring 2011-- Expertly bedazzled acid wash denim: Coming soon to a Forever 21 near you (cc @Forever21_tweet)"

@timesfashion: "Not sure how many studded biker jackets/ shorts/ jeans and trousers we needed to see at balmain"

@iamamayzing: "Do people go to Balmain expecting innovation & creativity? It's like a rich girl's version Trash & Vaudeville.. Meh."
