Balmain keep orienting on classics designed by the talented brand founder Pierre Balmain but with a maximal adding of modern tendencies. A runway walk looked very much like a scene from a science-fiction film about fashion in 2050 with the abundance of neon and holographic clothing material. Crystals, wool, jeans, lace, leather, latex, chiffon, velvet and metallic prevailed among the clothing material. Such colors as black, white, yellow, orange, silvery and pink have become the favorites of the color palette.
Despite the excessive presence of holography, the new collection is affective and abundant with short skirts, dresses decorated with lusters and silver men’s jackets. Critics have already branded this fashion show as the most glamorous and womanish one.
It seems like Olivier Rousteing (a creative director of the Fashion House) has decided to demonstrate the youth nature of the brand using familiar combination of bright graphics, tight-fitting silhouettes, glancing widgets and shiny skin. Military style suits, satin blazer jackets with leather insets, metallic silvery shirts and chain mail shirts will dress both men and women this year.
