Windowpane Color Blocked Sexiness: Balmain Spring/Summer 2015
Themes: 28 year-old Balmain Designer/Creative Director Olivier Rousteing (above) said that this collection was about Transparency and Sexy and 90's Supermodels. That's nice to hear from someone who was born in...1986. There were also Mondrian-like moments in terms of the colors, and lots of SEX. I also can't help but think when looking at each and every one of these looks how VERY Kim K these are. If that isn't his muse, she should be.
Trends: Sheer/Solid; bright colors; windowpane plaids; color blocking; sexy, fitted; below-the-knee dresses; super-long pants; high-waist; peek-a-boo skin reveal; 80's/early 90's Shoulders; Sleeveless Jackets; bandeau-top dressing; 70's "Studio 54" jumpsuits.
Colors: Highlighter yellow; white/navy blue; white; "Rainbow" colors; black and white; red; black.
