In Balmain Runway AW15, Olivier Rouesting grasps at the 70s Paris trend that is sweeping high fashion this season. He does this, however, with a uniqueness and flair that is only identifiable with the Balmain name, enabling the luxury label to become a first-choice for the likes of Christine Centenera and Gwen Stefani. Rouesting viewed the Parisian style in the 70s as exuberant, which is exemplified by his uncommon use of hued tones. Colour blocking was consistent and thematic, as was the loosely fitted yet still shapely silhouettes. The Balmain frocks stood out this season, with Rouesting striking an artistic balance between finery and layering, and a slip-on and go quality that is appealing to modern woman for effortless and functional dressing. At Balmain Parlour X, the long-sleeved, v-neck noir dress is the standout of the season. Featuring criss-cross chest detail, the dress is a functional and elegant piece that can be styled for day to night, work to play wear, as seen on Cheyenne Tozzi. The statement and incomparable Balmain blazer returns this season in 70s toned varieties. This is most evident in the jacket style Balmain long sleeve cardigan blazer featuring the unique embellishment of a tie and no buttons. The velvet jacket, as seen on Giovanna Bataglia and Cameron Diaz, comes in seasonal and thematic colours of prune and marine and demonstrates an exploration of fun and context without deterring from the sophistication associated with the label. For a classic and staple option there is the Balmain long sleeved doubled breasted jacket in noir with six gold buttons, as seen in Vogue Nipon and Elle magazine. The ultimate in high fashion and modern sophistication, this statement Balmain blazer that is loved by Kim Kardashian, is a must have piece in every twenty first century woman's wardrobe. Lastly, another statement Balmain piece is also featured in glamorous and stunning varieties. The Balmain T-shirt is a short sleeve top with gold buttons at the shoulders and features the eye-catching gold Balmain logo across the front. Coming in noir and Blanc, the standout shirt is a globally recognised and famous piece that is loved by Emma Stone and Chanel Iman, and is a must-have in any high-fashion, luxury wardrobe.
