Balmain Spring Summer 2021 Paris Fashion Week. RUNWAY MAGAZINE ® Collections. RUNWAY NOW / RUNWAY NEW
Balmain Spring Summer 2021 Paris Fashion Week. Review by ELEONORA DE GRAY, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
Olivier Rousteing new exploration of the history of the brand. Beautiful quotes of Pierre Balmain at the beginning of the show, classy and ultimate untimely looks presented by senior models. The collection gave an impression that Balmain had to hire an expert, and Olivier Rousteing was guided strongly in the lines of the brand.
And yes, Olivier Rousteing felt like “Winning!” after massive lawsuits storm during last 2 years for the copy designs of other houses. This time he stayed in the strong lines! Just this ones… Balmain logo patterns, longer silhouettes, some plays from 80s, colors, just high shoulder lines from Pierre Cardin, but that’s all about it. Strangely enough you can actually find new collection of Balmain for Spring Summer 2021 very elegant and beautiful. Was there someone else? Couldn’t be Olivier Rousteing creating from out of nowhere after crude copies of other designers and incapacity to create. But, hey… here we are… watching fabulous collection, all in lines, Pierre Balmain related, with strong creative concept.
Kim Kardashian gave her massive support on her instagram. Kanye West was actually present at the show. Although… no restrictions has been respected, concerning Covid-19. We are not in Milan after all. No masks, no social distancing, 1000 people got snugly squashed like canned sardines. Oh well…. see show and die!
