The craftsmanship alone should make us all fast in prayer to Skinny-Jesus for such a subprime blessing!
The Paris-label’s first ever men’s runway show did more than delivery; it severed, stuffed us and sent us back to the gym for some extra bench-presses.
Balmain‘s creative director Olivier Rousteing showcased a plethora of “toy soldiers” or militarism inspired luxury sexy garments. Structure and military themes have always gone hand in hand in previous collections from the designer, this was no different. Although, this time we got a hint of middle eastern garb included, there were a buffet of paratrooper pants, structured jackets and boot-sandal hybrids. Rousteing also, played with knits and macrame to create interesting layers amidst all the lushly fabrication and sometimes embellished designs. The draping/wrapping of the tops are outstanding and the knotting of rope to create the provocative non-body forgiving see-through tops are going to be top of every ostentatious fashion connoisseur next year. I can see even rappers getting in on the utilitarian guild.
Though this collection give me more fall than spring/summer it still manage to be strong, sexy and gaudy similar to Versace but with amazing architectural like tailoring.
