Until 1 min and 30 sec into Balmain’s SS18 ready-to-wear show, we witnessed a less screamy Balmain for a change. All blond models were marching the runway in latex and see-through garments. Don’t get it twisted, the collection, in general, is still very m’as-tu-vu. However, Olivier has put all his ruffles, stripes, glitters to good use and made a collection that could serve different types of women. Just take a look at how the leather over-the-knee boots make the looks so complete.
We have to give it to him for keeping his runway sexy and classy at the same time.
