For his Spring 2010 collection, Decarnin didn’t disappoint; once again, he created a look that included all of his signature embellishments, with an added military-chic twist to keep us guessing.

Distressed denim and torn tees were paired with low-slung, studded belts and sequined military jackets; jagged suede and leather skirts were mixed with super-tight leather tops and lace-up ankle boots in khaki and black. The collection was over-the-top yet brilliant.
