Christophe Decarnin Leaves Balmain

Christophe Decarnin of Balmain

This would explain a bit why Mr. Decarnin was a no show during Paris Fashion Week.

Christophe Decarnin, the now former creative director of Balmain, has left the French fashion house after five years of revamping the brand into the epitome of "sexy tough luxe" with leather blousons and gauzy t-shirts with heavily beaded embroideries.

There have been recent noticable differences within the two due to a speculated mental health issue with Decarnin. Tensions between the designer and Balmain’s chairman and chief executive officer Alain Hivelin had reached a breaking point, with the two men said to have widely divergent views on the company’s strategy and future direction.

Balmain is expected to officially announce Decarnin's separation and his successor later today.
