Paris Fashion Week is always one I look forward to. I enjoy watching all the runway shows from designers such as Chloe, Lanvin, Saint Laurent, Celine, Valentino, Chanel and many more. One stood out a lot this season and it’s BALMAIN’s Fall/Winter 2016 show.
I must say Olivier Rousteing’s direction towards the finer aspects of French couture has become a huge asset for the brand. I love the eye for detail that he portrays season after season and admire that he is willing to take risks with the silhouettes.
For many critics, this collection may seem too similar to the ones in the past. Yet, to those who understand his vision and love the design aesthetic of this talented creative director, this collection received our standing ovation. You do not need to take my word for it. Check out the runway show http://www.balmainlive.com/ and the looks will speak for themselves.
p.s. I love what he did with the hair on the models. For a few seconds, I did a double take on Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. I’m sure that these besties enjoyed trading looks for one a day.
