Balmain Givenchy Fall Winter 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Like many designers this season, Christophe Decarnin looked to David Bowie for his fall 2011 outing at Balmain. The Man Who Fell to Earth has been dominated the runway in all its many incarnations, but it was Ziggy Stardust who laid claim to real inspiration here, particularly with those zig-zagging jumpsuits and even in that gob-smacking silver spangled jumpskirt.
