One of the few designers whom I am completely obsessed with is the elegant yet edgy Balmain. Last fall, I feel, was one of designer Christophe Dearnin's best seasons. I love how this fashion house has become more edgy and bold with its material and colors. Last autumn, heavy brocade prints, brilliant golds and dark plums were found on many of the designs. How I wish I could own one of these coats.
