The Balmain show today was colorful and graceful. Olivier Rousteing used less leather and more silk for this collection. This collection has vibrant colors that are reminiscent of the eighties. I love the use of velvet in some of his pieces! The fringing and pleated looks Rousteing had used gave the collection an 80’s vibe. This was a show I was anticipating, I am somewhat disappointed as I love his last year AW collection with olive green and lots of leather. This collection has much less leather and brighter colors. Although it is different the collection still gives off Balmain elegance, the use of geometric lines give the collection a Balmain signature. Here is a look at the show from today.
