From dark and grungy to lightweight and pastel colored; Balmain fw2019 was filled with contradictions. “She’s got attitude; she is a troublemaker, and she doesn’t care. She’s defiant, but she is a paradox: She can be sweet and romantic too; she can be an angel . . . or she can be a devil. She cannot be categorized”, said Olivier Rousteing. Well there you go. The first looks were covered in spikes and studs. Yes that’s the dresses, skirts, leather jackets, shoes AND bags. Halfway throughout the collection they made way for a much more delicate image. Like flower embellishments, white fur and bleached boyfriend jeans. Shoulders were strong as ever as the super short A-line skirts couldn’t have been more pronunciated. The finale was dark, dramatic and 3D with floor sweeping capes, architectonic patent leather and bare shoulders, bellies and see through tops. A collection filled with bold statements. We’re curious to see which of them will make it out on the streets (or red carpets).
