When it comes to understanding women’s fashion tastes and precisely what they want, Balmain has managed to hit the nail on the head. The luxury fashion house headed by Olivier Rousteing is among the top in the industry, with celebrities, artists, and supermodels flaunting the label’s designs with confidence. From Naomi Campbell to Kim Kardashian, everyone wants to be a part of the “Balmain Army.”
Balmain’s Boundless Creativity
Since the time of its inception, Balmain dresses have been empowering women with their carefully structured silhouettes and feminine yet sharp cuts. The brand has been revered for its maximalist creations that honor the modern women of the era. It has tapped into the entertainment industry as well, with Rousteing designing costumes for concerts and movies, while also collaborating with corporate giants like Mattel, Inc. for the much-hyped Balmain x Barbie collection. The young genius believes that designing for a limited-edition capsule collection is the same as designing for fashion week, requiring the same fundamentals.
Paving a Unique Path
In every new Balmain collection, one can clearly see the balance between the classic couture silhouettes of Mr. Pierre Balmain’s era and the more modern, avant-garde designs of Mr. Rousteing. The clothes lean from sculptural to casual, all the while making the wearer feel strong yet glamorous. Diving into womenswear specifically, this feeling of strength and charm is evident in Balmain dresses. Well-fitted drapes with padded shoulders, military elements, generous use of metal hardware, studs, and embellishments — all come into play beautifully to showcase meaningful, power dressing.
