For Spring '09, Balmain clashed two cultures: the Wild West and the rockin' 80s. The campaign, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, depicts a stark, deserted diner in the background with Daria Werbowy posing hard in the forefront wearing Balmain's famous drummer boy coat, ripped to perfection jeans, and studded sandals. The juxtaposition between the two different worlds is interesting and I kind of like the dusty, dirt road against Balmain's sick, Spring offerings. But wait — isn't it a similar concept to Daria in the desert in Isabel Marant's latest ad? Hmmm . . .
