Balmain Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – Paris Fashion Week

The Balmain spring/summer 2014 collection designed by Olivier Rousteing was today introduced to the public scrutiny in the framework of Paris Fashion Week. If you think there’s not that much left for imagination and experimental techniques, this collage of fresh ideas is especially here to prove you’re mistaken. Wearable and beautiful, these outfits can please any capricious fashioniser. The pieces of this line are created with equal proportions of grace, cool looks, cuteness, and individual creativity.

Mainly based on such patterns as gingham and houndstooth pepita designs, the Balmain spring/summer 2014 collection demonstrates a set of fully accomplished primary ideas. The predominantly used fabrics, however surprising it may sound, include leather, most frequently presented as the variation of quilted leather type. This material is widely used in the creation of such garments as jackets and jumpsuits and even scattered towards the skirt shapes as well. This theme is put in the most various combinations one can imagine, having the perfect example of a delicate lace technique on an adorable chiffon shirt, combined with a quilted leather skirt.
The other slight emphasis of the Balmain spring/summer 2014 collection is denim turning up from time to time, basically in the shapes of overalls. The main focus of the silhouettes of the skirts stops around the trumpet variants, being a bit full. The other shapes include overalls, crafted of various fabrics and strapless tops and dresses, which do look alluring.
Coming to smaller details used in the Balmain spring/summer 2014 collection, which are by no means less important than the major ones, we can talk about the fluffy and stripy motives, periodically appearing via different representations on the runway. Apart from this, the embroidery used with some pieces is simply stunning.

Finally, we can’t miss out the heavy accessories mainly having the shapes of massive chains, put as bijou, belts or just like complementing adornments for the garments. The huge buttons found on some pieces are worth mentioning as well.
Finishing up with the color palette, we can distinctly notice that it consists of calmer and cooler shades, absolutely excluding the bright and eye-catching ones. This is probably the most suitable solution for these high-end outfits.
So, the Balmain spring/summer 2014 collection can be called another successful experiment with shapes and fabrics, attaching some new meanings to the latter with the help of very spectacular representations and tricks.
