Balmain Spring/Summer 2021


Balmain SS21 RTW
Olivier Rousteing is one of the very few designers on the fashion scene whose name and persona are equivalent (if not overshadow) the popularity of his maison. Season after another, nothing less than extravagance could be expected of this young rebel French designer.

Homage to the founding father Pierre Balmain was evident as his words and expert statements were projected during the show. According to him black is the way to go: “Black is the only color young people can wear more successfully than older people. A young girl dressed in black is always tremendously beautiful...”

Back to the very intimate show, in a social distancing era, the show had A-listers tuning in via digital screens like JLo, Kim Kardashian, Anna Wintour, Cara Delevingne, Cindy Crawford more.

Significant 1970s looks and a lot of the Balmain’s monogram were part of the SS21 RTW collection. Latex, fluorescent colors, street denim, sailor patterns, and shoulder jackets of course, weren’t to be missed!
