Balmain and designer Olivier Rousteing bring to the PARIS FASHION WEEK runway who’s who of the modelling scene. Alongside Natasha Poly, Sasha Luss, Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes the runway cast brought leading male models in the industry such as Francisco Lachowski, Bertold Zahoran, Kit Butler, Jeremy Dufour, Jon Kortajarena, Dominik Sadoch, Hao Yun Xiang and Baptiste Giabiconi to name a few.
Those small cubed images were the starting point for this collection. The many beach shots helped create a digital mood board of exotic playas, praias and pantai, where friends chill after a day filled with sun, surf and swim, hoping that the night never ends—but at the same time looking forward to one more beautiful sunrise. Designs channel the athletic, masculine and confident style that unifies this diverse tribe. The cut is easy and relaxed, with ponchos, capes, bombers and long-line sweaters playing slouchy games of proportion with joggers and voluminous trousers. What’s new for Balmain is the strong injection of color—reflecting the intense shades of the sea, sky and sand, as well as the infectious optimism of this band of revelers as they await the new day. – from Olivier Rousteing
