“Over the last five years, I’ve created a new, recognisable Balmain silhouette… It is inspired by the secure and powerful women that I see around me and admire so much.”
We could not agree more Olivier Rousteing.
Balmain’s recent collections have been strong and fierce, and the Resort 2016 collection brought this aesthetic even further.
It’s an earthy colour palette with pops of burnt orange and metallics. But it’s the textiles that we’re drooling over. Suede, lace-up detailing, sequins, leather, light knits, frills and some fabulous latticework.
His signature mini silhouettes and structured jackets are accompanied by column dresses and jumpsuits. We are particularly infatuated with the jewelled lattice top and skirt combo.
Hats off, Olivier.
