Balmain Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Womenswear SS2014
Checks, strong shoulders and models walking in a powerful pace; Olivier Rousteing’s spring collection was recognizable as Balmain from a mile distance. The designer once again had been soft viagra looking back for inspiration; his creations with large golden buttons, necklaces and belts had an obvious nineties feel to them. Yet this time around Rousteing turned those nostalgic influences into modern wearability by giving ultimate streetwear pieces like bomber jackets, overalls and skater dresses a chic upgrade. Of course he still put a lot of detail and hours (and hours) of work in those designs, but he managed to give them a kind of coolness. The coolness that will make A-listers want to throw on one of those hounds tooth jackets when going out for lunch or make an original (and probably best dressed) appearance on the red carpet in those pink pastel pleated pants and lace top. Balmain SS2014 will be the ultimate mix of casual and chic, now what girl isn’t in for that?
