Balmain Ready To Wear AW14-15

 “If Olivier Rousteing has his way, next season we’ll be marching to the beat of Balmain’s regimental drum.” – Vogue Magazine

     Balmain is a designer brand I’ve only discovered within the last six months, but I have fallen completely in love with their styling, clothing and everything they stand for. The detailing on some of Balmain’s pieces is beyond comparison to any other label - it shows the great thought they put into their collections and how much work goes into creating such beautiful clothing.

     Being Balmain, it wasn’t about practicality; it was a collection of explosive designs that were focused on strength and sensuality. A safari chic, hip-hop mash up of black, khaki, leopard print, sexy pleated skirts and tight little waists which were the main focus of their ready to wear collection. Additionally, Balmain never fails to provide a strong structure to their clothing, bringing fortitude and power. Rihanna showed up at the event, dressed in a head-to-toe look from the collection, displaying just what it takes to pull off one of these designs.

     Creative director, Oliver Rousteing has created a whole new epidemic: “The Balmain Army” something which links directly back to the clothing and all that the brand has to offer. Rousteing has recruited the likes of Rosie, Joan, Jourdan, Karlie, Edie and Malaika – “a formidable force to be reckoned with.”

     It wasn’t just tight sensual designs that caught my eye as there were more loose fitting ensembles that showed just as much character. Overall I love the new ready-to-wear collection from Balmain, and I can’t wait for their next collection, which I bet will have fans of the label standing to attention.
