Since then Balmain womenswear designer Olivier Rousteing took over the reans of Decarnin’s position.

    Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #15 – Donald

    April 13th, 2011

    We met Donald at Toni Francesc’s FW 2011 Fashion Show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. He was one of the attendant and waiting for Toni’s Show backstage. We immediately noticed him due to his stunning outfit. His Eli Tahari jacket and the namesake blazer underneath, combined with a Topman vest was just perfectly dressed. But the real eye-catcher was definitely the catchy red Robert Talbott tie and the way he was wearing it with a Vintage pin from the 40s. Congrats Donald, we couldn’t have done it better.
