From a creator who makes Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera resonate loudly in the heart of the Palais Garnier, the sacrosanct venue for classical arts, a delightful yet delicious affair that sets the tone for the collection, titled Talkin '' Bout My Generation. The summer of 2020 will be milenial spirit , a hybrid era both near and far, which has seen the emergence of ultra-girly pop singers, boy bands and addictive sitcoms.
Over the 107 passages, we find with pleasure, all the codes of the house Balmain: ultra-graphic silhouettes, the overdose of embroidery, stripes and dresses incandescent. For summer 2020, we willingly dodge the caftan to make an evening dress, the sets, pleated and fluid, hold as if by magic (or by a clever game of adhesive), the volumes are maxi or mini, no fair-middle possible for Balmain. This is a collection full of references to pop culture that Olivier Rousteing offers us, sometimes paying tribute to Grace Jones, sometimes to the singers of the late 90s: Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan, Christiana Aguilera and JLo, represented by a color block quartet, in denim from head to toe.
Surprised at the end of the show, no Bella or Kendall has parade, but does Balmain still need star models to talk about its collections? Olivier Rousteing preferred to bet on an utra-mixed cast, choosing diversity rather than headliners. A wise choice for a Balmain Army more beautiful than ever.
