Balmain Spring/Summer 2019
Glamorous, youthfulness, red-carpet worthy, with touches of nautical and futuristic styles, Balmain’s runway show was a presentation of the concept of “well-dressed.” Mini-dresses, mirrored garments, angled shoulders, and something sexy in every silhouette was Balmain’s choices for a style that seems inspired by Vegas excess—minus everything tacky. The modern high-couture is not as sophisticated as we think—in Balmain’s fashion the rule is to astonish with your style, there’s no space for boredom or more-of-the-same fashion. “Impactful” was also the theme in the accessories. Metallic over-knee boots and small round leather purses were as beautiful as they are creatively young. The oversized white blazer with over-knee white boots is the perfect example of how Balmain matched sophistication with a contemporary style for the alluring women they’re speaking to. If not to inspire the more casual, everyday outfit, Balmain definitely presented looks to copy on your next night out. Their garments had the power to bring that red-carpet feeling in every piece.
