“My Balmain army has shed its armor.” Olivier Rousteing on Balmain Spring/Summer 2017

Today Balmain showed their Spring/Summer 2017 runway show inspired by the unique strength of those strong women that designer, Olivier Rousting calls his Balmain army. Women that never shy away from showing their softer side, sure in the knowledge that there’s no longer any need to shout. For me the collection was quite a surprise, following all the Met Gala moments that ensued in New York I was sure that Olivier would be putting heavy, intense, high embellished looks down the runway for this collection but to my surprise he did the complete opposite and showcased a softer, lighter and flowier runway show which theoretically makes sense for a Spring/Summer collection! AS MUCH as you know I am obsessed with my pearls, crystals & etc. it is indeed refreshing to see a new style come into the ethos of Balmain.

Amidst the beautiful easter hues and the ruffles, lace and embellishments there were key set of looks that revitalized my undeniable urge for all things crystal and pearl from Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain… All I could think was that the BLING AND THE KING is back!!! IT’S NOT that I feel as if Balmain went anywhere and is back… NO.. It’s not that at all! What it is, is that their is a certain design aesthetic and untouchable detail that I personally find to be the houses best asset.. Their unbeatable embellishments… The insane details, the un-defeatable silhouettes and the undeniable attention to detail… This is the Balmain that is king…. The hierarchy is back in order and Balmain is at the top… THIS is what Balmain is known for.. It’s crazy because to me…. IN this collection I see design details, and aspects from some of Olivier’s recent past collections for Balmain as creative director.. It’s almost as if this Fall/Winter 2016 collection were a retrospective of some of his best recent works and I love every second of it!!!! VIVE A BALMAIN!!!
