One high end brand inspired by another? It might occur, yet they’ll never expose it. Although Olivier Rousteing mentioned the roaring seventies, in which YSL reigned supreme, were his source of inspiration. Loulou de la Falaise, YSL muse in particular. Her abundant style of dressing and her vibrant color palette of orange, yellow, purple and green was all over Balmain’s runway. Most pieces were taken to the extreme. Palazzo pants and overcoats slightly drowned the fragile models. Although fringe jackets (already worn by Kim Kardashian, fresh off the runway), body con dresses and big waist belts perfectly accentuated their bodies. The embroidered bodies that used to breathe hours and hours of work were missing for the most part. In stead Rousteing delivered fringes, pleats and fur. Glitters and metallic made the collection 100% party proof. Festive? Absolutely! Yet the collection seemed to lack some of Balmain’s signature craftsmanship.
