Designer Dish. Balmain Sticking to “Lesser-Known Design Talent” to Replace Decarnin

April 13, 2011 • Fashion

The Balmain we know and love

Dry those eyes Balmain lovers, it seems that the label is not about to be undone. After the news broke last week that Balmain's head designer Christophe Decarnin had stepped down from his post due to mental illness, the label has already allegedly found his replacement and plan to make an official announcement "in the next two to three days," according to British Elle.

When asked who would be filling Decarnin's shoes, the cryptic answer was ‘They’re going to choose someone unknown. Christophe was an unknown when he came to Balmain, and the owners want to support lesser-known design talent.’ Stylist Melanie Ward, who joined the luxe label after Emmanuelle Alt left to take over French Vogue, was rumored to be in the running to replace Decarnin. We don't mind who it is as long as they can continue the legacy of the overly embellished military jacket and strategically ripped jean.
