Balmain Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

In this crazy period of eclecticism when uttering “sexual woman” some of us may conceive a woman with androgynous shapes and silhouettes, a group of people definitely consider bohemian girls to be the sexiest, while for the third group a real sexy woman should be super active and sporty. However, no one can ever deny that a woman with curvy shapes, who is in no way perplexed to accentuate her assets by wearing body hugging pieces and who is just proud to expose her muscular and athletic legs, is a timeless symbol of sexuality. Olivier Rousteing, the creative director of the French luxe fashion brand Balmain has unveiled his spring/summer 2016 collection lately in Paris’s Hotel Intercontinental enthusiastically sharing with us his vision of sexuality and passion and what is more important through convincing us to go in for Balmain-style sexuality for the spring to come.

Balmain Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

In order to fully convey the vibes of his crazy soul Rousteing had created a big box of the most impressive and sumptuous models and styled it with a large romantic bow, afterwards gifting it to the show attendees, who were just impatient to unpack it and find out the catwalk being bombarded by such top models as Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Isabeli Fontana, Joan Smalls, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Lily Aldridge, Lily Donaldson and so on.

Legendary Michael Jackson’s music was beating and the catwalk was heartily welcoming self-confident and sexy women one after another and you were trying to figure out whether the intricate pieces were garnishing the models or just vice versa. The designer managed to interweave them and demonstrate a truly confident woman, who was always the master of the situation.

Looking through the Balmain spring/summer 2016 collection and trying to catch the designer’s milestone was not as much difficult. While preparing for the upcoming collaboration with H&M the 30-year-old designer went through the brand’s archives and presented a spring 2016 lineup as a summary of his achievements throughout these four years in Balmain thus outlining the brand’s future path.

The collection was once again a reference to Rousteing’s favorite oversized belts tightly cinched at the waist, somehow rigorous square shoulders that were doubly highlighting Balmain woman’s moral strength, those super-minis audaciously baring sensual thighs and, of course, the number one indicators of Routing’s aesthetic – intricate macrame frocks having some round motifs on them, sophisticated beaded panels that seemed to be so heavy to carry, an explosion of latticework, mesh and fishnet that were proudly showing some fragments of the strong and sexual bodies of the models.

There was an effective addition to the collection – fulvous brown suede that was caressing the models’ bodies in the form of cigarette pants, corset-style tops and bodysuits with crisscross tops. Tiered ruffles were everywhere whether you were looking at a bright orange floor-sweeping dress or a black skirt so perfect for a daring woman. Then there were some superhero pantsuits that were hugging the models’ bodies so tightly as to display even the slightest trait. Persian green was also there on Joan Smalls, who was wearing a long-sleeved mini dress with crisscross and military pockets.

This spring, the strong #BalmainBeauties are true followers of the blue high-heeled gladiator #BalmainBooties. Still hesitating about the power of the Balmain woman? Are you still searching for confirmation? Throw a glance at the models’ necks.
