Amid tropical vegetation and a landscape of natural foliage, Balmain’s runway presented in Paris seemed to awaken the brand’s instincts. Taking a softer route towards nature, the Balmain army appears to want to cover themselves in the most beautiful things in the wild. “This collection is inspired by the unique strength of these women that I’m lucky enough to mingle with – Balmain women.” And so Olivier Rousteing’s beauties were adorned in glam military khaki or enrapturing sand-colored drapings.
This cascade dress in a forest green snakeskin confirms Balmain’s trend for next season – Pierre Balmain’s design leaves much to the imagination, but he also has a fascination for dresses sculpted like an architect designs a building in a city. The waist is belted to perfect the Balmain girl’s movement à la Rousteing – this is a women on a quest for nature, or eternal calm in the infinite Jungle.
