Balmain Homme In HUGE Magazine
Japanese high end style magazine, HUGE has featured Balmain Homme in their latest issue as a key editorial feature! Oh my, those shots starring model Ash Stymest are fabulous! Move aside Dior Homme...good bye Hedi Slimane...Christophe Decarnin is here to steer men crazy with his Balmain Homme collection instead. (Click on pics to enlarge for better view)
If the Japanese take on well to Balmain's new menswear, soon the world will follow in huge hordes.
Thanks to Mervyn for his twitter heads up!
Take a stand. Who do you think makes a better Balmain model? Ash or Clément
And here's an interview from Club 21's website with their menswear buyer on his insights for the debut Balmain Homme collection:

Low Long Cheng from Club 21 menswear merchandising is all shook up about Balmain
Homme by Christophe Decarnin. He tells RICKY YEO why.
Hi, LC – what’s all the fuss about Balmain-ia?
Christophe Decarnin originally started at Balmain women’s wear. At a time when “pretty” dominated the catwalk shows, he stood out for introducing a daring, sexy rock ‘n’ roll attitude with inflections of 1980s glamour. His edgy, outrageously glamorous look quickly became a hot favourite with fashion editors, stylists and socialites from New York to Tokyo. The exaggerated shoulder or “tennis ball shoulder” on jackets and dresses, as well as sexy body- conscious dresses encrusted with crystals were crazy-wild! For Balmain Homme, the rock ’n’ roll styling is translated into beautifully cut jeans with distressed treatments; perfect T-shirts; and sexy, masculine leather shoulder pieces.
What’s the strongest look from Balmain Homme AW09?
Jeans with a leather blouson.
These apparels are perfect for what occasions?
These looks take the quintessential inner city Parisian guy from day to night – in unassailable style.
What’s notable about the make or fabrication?
The collection is mostly in leather and denim with special distressed and damaged treatments.
An accessory to lust for.
The chain metal belts rock!
Describe the personality of the man who wears Balmain Homme.
The Balmain Homme man has a sexy, knowing Parisian street attitude with a just-got-out-of-bed look. Perfect for the fashionable dude who lives the rock ’n’ roll life. He’d go, on a typical Saturday, to the chic Angelina’s on Rue Rivoli for tea; then trudge to a gritty pub for an indie rockin’ night out. He moves in and out of formal society and the underground subcultures with ease.
Balmain Homme is now available at Club 21 Mens Singapore, Four Seasons Hotel
