Who Needs a Compliment When in Balmain?
Today, when we talk Balmain, we talk creative director Olivier Rousteing. Sparing the details, the man is as confident as you should get and his clothes don’t shy away from that title.
Below you will find images of the men’s F/W 2014 collection and you will realize that the Rousteing touch requires no stamp of approval. Rousteing worked a safari theme and played with colors of green, khaki, and camel, and exotic animal prints from leopard to zebra. The collection screamed organic extravagance, and expanded the world of Balmain.
Balmain this season brought you leather jackets and drop-crotch Jodhpur trousers in olive drab; and printed leopard jackets in pony skin. The collection also included and slip-on sneakers and evening shoes. The collection merely represented his new direction and remaking of Balmain: “It’s being more myself; my music, my style, my generation,” he said.
