There has been a lot of talk lately of a Balmain diffusion line which has left many fashionistas pretty hot under the collar. The idea of pieces by Christophe Decarnin being available for under £1000 is a pretty exciting idea, but unfortunately the excitement ends here.
Vogue reported this morning that the idea was just a rumour. A spokesperson explains, "There is no Balmain lower priced line. What I think you might be referring to is a capsule collection that was prepared for some Parisian retailers. Christophe Decarnin wasn't involved in that project. The brand has decided to not repeat the experience, preferring to concentrate all its efforts on the mainline."
Well, we can still dream!
