As the complete Kardashian clan seemed to have gathered front row Olivier Rousting presented his army of amazons. A spring summer story that took no less than 80 looks to be told. A story on glitz and glam, unfortunately without the detailed handwork we’d gotten so used to see at Balmain. No beading, no crystal embroideries, no thread work; Rousting must have needed all his time to finish of those eighty looks. A pity. Instead of the pieces of art from his former collections we were presented with seductive and powerful ensembles. Endless palazzo pants, floor sweeping snake print coats and maxi bandage dresses gave the models legs for days. Legs that were just as much on display as anything else, due to those thigh high slits. Cut-outs in all kind of places gave the looks a little more air and the models even more of a sexy feel. A collection that truly fits Kim Kardashians (who was by the way not wearing any underwear to the event) fashion needs. Yet perhaps Rousting is designing with the Kardashians on his mind a little too much instead of his actual customer.
