Balmain, the original Parisian purveyor of cool, is not one for change. In a perfect example of the phrase, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, the fashion house exemplified their signature cool and effortless style as their unveiled their latest collection in the fashion capital. “This is the ultimate up-do”, declared Sam. “It’s the Balmain girl at her glorious, glowing, natural best. Georgia May, Rosie, Karlie et al are all without embellishment, whilst their clothes have extreme embellishment – it’s the perfect balance”. Sam’s was creating a style which had natural texture to it, that was made to look just that little bit less clean with a tiny amount of his season staple, Magic Move pomade, worked into the mid-lengths and ends. Easy, breezy, Balmain.
