We have the second collection of Olivier Rousteing for Balmain, in which the designer has sought inspiration in Fabergé eggs: pearls and crystals cover creations outputs of their workshops. A work Summit of jewelry that serves only to be kept in a glass case, and to wear in the street? Remains the brand Balmain cool that Christophe Decarnin was able to capture the attention of the public, famous and cloners of brands low cost, or no equipment?
As if the models came out of the Palace of Versailles in the 17TH century, the upholstery is used for the ornate designs of Balmain. Elaborate handmade pieces that transform into tight dresses and large jackets. Thick and padded fabrics that are not easy to carry.
Another more appropriate furnishing of interiors that the modern wardrobe element: the Velvet, that it is stained blue to create pants and blazers. Elegant and luxurious, an element that yes could become a favourite of the voguettes and trendsetters.
The firm that became fashionable shoulder three years ago retrieves the silhouette of strong shoulders, although this time with a square silhouette, Tosca, capes that are large and hang from the shoulders, supplemented with skinny pants. Is this the silhouette that crazy all the fashionistas next winter?
At the end, and after all, that is the million-dollar question. If Balmain is still as cool as to collect more than 1,000 euros for a broken pair of jeans, or 6,000 euros for a dress and into the rest of signature inspiration, who is to head.
