Olivier Rousteing’s army of Russian supermodels presented his latest work at the the Palais Garnier. A special location for Rousteing since the first trip he ever made to Paris he watched the ballet at this very venue. Therefore his show today seemed to have a deeper layer to it. It was not just about pretty clothing and a hot looking glamazone squad. There was a subtle change noticeable that might have originated from Rousteing’s desire to work a little more from the inside out as he spoke of his adoption backstage after the show. Getting to know Rousteing a little better resulted in strong and sexy looks with a slightly more loose silhouette. Body tight dresses had playful ruffle details and there were even some loose ‘sweaters’ and suit jackets. Patent leather and metallic detailing popped up in almost every single look as the color palette of black and whites only changed towards the end of the show when touches of red and blue spiced things up. Oh and since strong shoulders are back in fashion, of course Balmain re-rocked that trend to the fullest.
